Free Wi-Fi on the Underground to be free until 2013
Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
Virgin Media have decided that its London Underground Wi-Fi service will stay free for everyone until 2013.
The original plan was for the subterranean internet access to be free during the Olympic summer, with a paywall then shooting up for everyone but Virgin Media customers.
The company has already infiltrated 72 tube stations around the capital, with Waterloo, Victoria, King’s Cross and Oxford Circus reportedly some of the busiest.
So it looks like the internet is here to stay on the London Underground, with more stations set to get Wi-Fi on the platform in the next twelve months.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look as though the annoying Virgin Media splash page is going anywhere either.
