Tube Stations To Get Wi-Fi In Next Few Weeks

Passengers will be able to check emails, browse the internet and even attempt to watch live TV on their mobiles, tablets and laptops while waiting for trains at 80 stations across the network. Another 40 will be connected by the end of the year. The service, which will be free to everyone for the whole summer, is expected to come online at some stations, including King's Cross, Leicester Square, Oxford Circus and Stratford, within the next couple of weeks. Virgin Media, which is providing the service in partnership with Transport for London, said passengers would be able to connect to the internet in ticket halls, on escalators and platforms and from inside trains waiting in stations.
