The key railroad connecting Mashhad to Tehran and Qom is to be equipped with 4G coverage, as per an agreement signed between mobile operator Mobile Telecommunication Company of Iran (MCI) and the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways (IRIR).
Based on the weekend agreement, MCI will provide commuters between Tehran, Mashhad, and Qom with 4G services by March 2020. The railroad currently has 2G and 3G coverage.
With a track length of 811km, the railroad which connects the three cities is the most traveled route in Iran. An estimated 3.2 million people used the Khorasan Razavi railroad in the first quarter of the current fiscal that started in March, up 22% year-on-year. 
Last year 24.5 million people travelled by train across the country with half the number using railroads to and from Khorasan Razavi Province.
