London Underground wi-fi

Users of the London Underground will shortly be able to connect to the internet at Tube stations across the capital.  Oxford Circus, Stratford (for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park) and King’s Cross will be among stations with courtesy wi-fi enabled by the end of July, a total of 80.  The plan is to have up to 120 stations connected by end of 2012.
With the eyes of the world on London this summer, Virgin Media’s next generation wi-fi service will be made available to all Tube passengers for free throughout the summer.  Millions of commuters and visitors to London will be able to get online at Tube stations and find their way around the capital with up-to-the-minute Transport for London (TfL) travel information, access social media whilst they wait for their next train on the station platform or browse the web to discover the very best London has to offer this summer.  Or plain work.
The new free online portal will offer current TfL service information including TfL’s journey planner and entertainment and news content useful for a commute to work or trip into town. www.tfl.gov.uk
