The free London Underground WiFi provided by Virgin Media has been available since launch in June this year, but was going to revert to a PAYG service sometime after the Olympics finished.

But today The Telegraph has reported that Virgin Media have confirmed the service will remain free for all until 2013.

Virgin Media executive Jon James said:

Commuters and visitors will be able to make use of the internet throughout 2012 and we’re in positive talks with potential wholesale partners to ensure a fantastic experience for all Tube passengers throughout 2012 and beyond.

Over 660,000 people have joined the service since its launch, and at the end of August Virgin Media reported that it had provided over 8 million ‘connected moments’ to subscribers during the Olympics.

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