First 80 Wi-Fi Tube stations named in London

14

After firing up the first base stations yesterday, Transport for London and Virgin Media just announced the first 80 Tube stations to receive free Wi-Fi for the Olympic Games. All the big names are on the list, with stations such as Oxford Circus, Stratford, Liverpool Street, Leicester Square and King’s Cross scheduled to come online first. The rest of the stations will be up by the end of July with hotspots accessible from the train platform, ticket offices, and escalators.

These stations will continue offering free Wi-Fi throughout the summer before a tariff is applied after the Paralympic Games. 120 of the Tube's 270 stations will offer Wi-Fi hotspots by the end of the year.
