EE and Vodafone have signed up with Virgin Media as partners on the London Underground WiFi Service allowing millions of EE and Vodafone customers to join Virgin Media users to enjoy full WiFi access across London Underground keeping the majority of Tube passengers connected for no extra cost.
Jon James, executive director of broadband at Virgin Media said:
WiFi on London Underground has been an incredible success with over 700,000 people already online and a remarkable million sessions every day. We’re rolling out the service to reach even more stations throughout London, from Camden Town to Clapham Common and, thanks to our partnership with EE and Vodafone, the majority of Tube users can stay connected for no extra cost.
We’re delighted that Virgin Media customers are making the most of our superfast fibre optic network, both at home with unbeatable broadband speeds and now with our ground-breaking WiFi service.
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.
72 London Underground stations are already WiFi enabled and Virgin Media is working in partnership with Transport for London to install another 20 Tube stations in December with a further 28 stations due to come online early next year.
