Virgin Media Wi-Fi launched at 20 additional London Underground stations

Virgin Media Wi-Fi launched at 20 additional London Underground stationsVirgin Media’s Wi-Fi rollout on the world’s oldest underground rail system is fair cracking on.

Somewhat synonymous with the 2012 Olympics initially, Virgin Media is looking to 2013 and beyond, and it’s just thrown another 20 London Underground stations online.

The lucky stations are (deep breath): Belsize Park, Notting Hill Gate, Camden Town, Seven Sisters, Chalk Farm, South Kensington, Highgate, Swiss Cottage, Mornington Crescent, Bounds Green…

Still with me? How about: Balham, Finsbury Park, Clapham Common, Holloway Road, Oval, Russell Square, Clapham South, Turnpike Lane, Lancaster Gate and Wood Green.

Yowsers. That brings the total number of Virgin Media Wi-Fi enabled London Underground stations to 92, with a further 28 scheduled for “early 2013”. Yep, that’ll make an even 120.

Brilliantly, the service is free to subscribers of Virgin Media broadband and mobile, with a recent deal adding EE and Vodafone to the equation. Virgin Media reckons that equates to 76% of consumers in Greater London.

For those on O2 and Three Mobile (sorry, guys), Virgin Media will shortly roll out London Underground Wi-Fi passes on a PAYG basis, at £2 per day, £5 per week, or £15 per month.

For more details and stuff, head over to the Virgin Media Media Centre.

Meh, haven't found this very useful. By the time you've connected to wifi, typed in your password and started to surf, the tube has turned up and you're losing signal as the train leaves the station. Unless I've been luck with good service that is. I bet its jammed when trains break down so you wouldn't be able to use it when you actually need to anyway......

You'd have to be living down there to find £15 a month worthwhile.
