Virgin Media Expands WiFi to 150 London Underground Tube Stations

Monday, November 3rd, 2014 (11:29 am) - Score 544

Virgin Media has announced that its UK network of public WiFi Hotspots have been expanded again to cover a total of 150 London Underground Tube stations. Apparently commuters who make use of the underground WiFi network (over 2.5 million devices are registered to use the service) gobble more than 3TB (TeraBytes) of data every single day.

The latest six stations to go live include Wimbledon, Richmond, Morden, East Ham, Barking and Upminster Underground stations. Meanwhile the hotspot that sees the “most activity” across the entire service is the Waterloo & City Line platform at Waterloo station, while Kings Cross and Oxford Circus are the “overall busiest stations“.

Joe Lathan, Director of Broadband at Virgin Media, said:

This is a milestone moment for Virgin Media with 150 Tube stations and more than two and a half million devices now connected to WiFi on London Underground. Tube passengers have loved the WiFi service ever since we launched in time for London 2012. Now they can benefit from live travel information, news and social media in Tube stations across the capital.”

Customers of Virgin Media, O2, EE, Three UK and Vodafone are able to use the WiFi service for free (without restriction), while others have the option of paying £2 a day, £5 per week or £15 for a monthly pass.
