O2 cranks out free public Wi-Fi in time for the Olympics

O2 cranks out free public Wi-Fi in time for the OlympicsTelefonica’s O2 first started jawing about its free public Wi-Fi plans way back in January 2011, and one year later the network promised it’d be good to go in time for the London Olympics.

As the nation’s capital prepares to become the Busiest Place on Earth (as if it isn’t crazy enough already), O2 will indeed ease the pain with free public Wi-Fi.

O2 will join Virgin Media in offering free Wi-Fi across London, the difference being that O2 will continue to provide its service after the Olympics.

The first areas to score O2’s free Wi-Fi are Oxford Street, Regent Street, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Parliament Square, and they’ll soon be joined by Covent Garden.

London’s beloved Mayor, Boris Johnson, screamed: "With millions of extra people coming to town for the Games, we want to ensure we showcase the capital as the best city in the world to work and visit, and the addition of free wifi to some of our most popular landmarks is crucial in helping to maintaining that reputation.”

You don’t have to be an O2 customer to take advantage of the free Wi-Fi. Just head over to http://o2wifi.co.uk/ to register.
