London Underground’s Wi-Fi Now Operational
31/05/2012 | Nicholas Griffin
You may have read the article that we posted a few months back talking about how Virgin Media was planning to provide Wi-Fi to the London Underground, well it seems that the service is now operational but hasn’t quite been officially announced yet.
The news of the service being operational comes from a tweet Roy Cella-Jones a BBC journalist and presenter posted earlier today, although Virgin Media are yet to announce a public release of the service, we do know that the service is aimed to be operational in time for the London Olympics this summer, and will bring Wi-Fi hotspots to 80 of the Undergrounds 270 stations.
But one thing to point out is that the service will only work in stations, and will not be available when the trains are moving between stations, and at first this will be a free service but after the Olympics Virgin are planning to charge for use of the service.
