Virgin Media London Underground WiFi Provided Over 8 Million Connected Moments During The Olympics

Virgin Media made free WiFi available on the London underground back in June, rolling the service out quickly across 72 of the underground network of stations with service extending to 120 stations by the end of this year.

Today they announced that during the course of the Olympic 2012 games (between Friday 27th July and Sunday 12th August), their free WiFi service was used to enable “over eight million tweets, Facebook posts, emails and web pages”.

Olympic venues and central tourist destinations – Stratford, North Greenwich, West Ham, Covent Garden, Canning Town and Waterloo – were some of the busiest WiFi enabled stations as Londoners, ticket holders and tourists went online to check their teams’ latest medal win, re-live the photo finishes and find the best spot for lunch.

The service was completely free during the games period, but from September the service will switch to a PAYG option (prices to be confirmed) with a portal containing TfL travel info and news remaining free. The service will also remain free for Virgin Media broadband and mobile subscribers.

More details can be found on the Virgin Media London Wifi website.
