Eighty Tube Stations To Get Free WiFi

Eighty tube stations are going to get free WiFi this summer in time for the Olympics.

It will be on escalators, platforms and ticket halls, but not on trains.

Kings Cross, Leicester Square and Stratford are among the first stations to have wireless internet installed by Virgin Media.

Gareth Powell, London Underground's Director of Strategy and Service Development, said: "Our customers will soon be able to connect to the internet for live travel information while they are on the move through stations.

"Bringing a next generation WiFi service to one of the world's oldest underground transport networks is progressing as planned and the forthcoming service is testing well.

"The first stations include some of our busiest and most well-known destinations and we're on-track for a successful launch this summer - all delivered at no additional cost to fare payers or tax payers."
