O2 UK Target FREE WiFi for London Underground Stations on 22nd July

Tuesday, Jul 2nd, 2013 (2:06 pm) - Score 519

Mobile operator O2 has confirmed that its public wireless internet (wifi) service at 120 London Underground train stations, which will be offered for free to their customers, will now go live on 22nd July 2013 after having suffered a slight delay from June 2013.

The new service is part of a wholesale agreement with Virgin Media that was first announced in April 2013 (here). Virgin Media initially built and offered access to the network for free to support last year’s London 2012 Olympic Games. But after that it went commercial and access was made available to other operators via wholesale.

A Spokesperson for O2 said (V3):

O2 is testing Underground WiFi service between now and official launch on 22 July to ensure fully operational service upon launch. The service will be officially switched on 22 July and available, for free, to all O2 WiFi registered users.”

Virgin Media has also had similar wholesale deals in place with Vodafone and EE (T-Mobile and Orange UK) since earlier this year. Sadly anybody who is not an EE, Virgin, O2 or Vodafone customer will need to pay for daily (£2), weekly (£5) or monthly (£15) access passes.
