Virgin Media WiFi Enables 20 More UK London Underground Train Stations

Tuesday, Dec 11th, 2012 (9:59 am) - Score 464

Cable operator Virgin Media has this morning confirmed that its FREE public wireless internet (wifi) service is now available from a further 20 London underground tube stations, which brings the total coverage to 92 stations and an additional 28 stations are due to come online in early 2013.

Overall some 800,000 people have registered with Virgin Media’s Wi-Fi service (up from 700,000 last month), which is set to remain free until early 2013 when EE and Vodafone will become official wholesale partners. Customers of the three operators will continue to access the service for free, while everybody else will need to pay for daily (£2), weekly (£5) or monthly (£15) passes.

Jon James, Executive Director of broadband at Virgin Media, said:

WiFi on London Underground has been an incredible success and we’ve rolled out the service to reach even more stations throughout London, from Camden Town to Clapham Common. Our wholesale agreement with EE and Vodafone will keep the majority of Tube users connected for no extra cost and every Londoner and visitor can choose from affordable PAYG options with free, up-to-the-minute travel, news and entertainment for everyone.”
