150 underground stations now use Virgin Media WiFi

With the addition of 6 new hotspots to Virgin Media's underground Wi-Fi network, passengers can now access the web at a total of 150 London Tube stations. Wimbledon, Richmond, Morden, East Ham, Barking and Upminster are the latest stations to be added to the growing network, which now delivers over 3TB of data to commuters every day.

The system has been available on the Underground since June 2012, right in time for the London Olympic Games. In fact, the event created a huge spike in usage, with nearly half a million people using the Wi-Fi network across 72 stations. Since then the Waterloo & City line station at Waterloo station has proved to be the most active spot, while Kings Cross and Oxford Circus continue to be the busiest stations overall.

Joe Lathan, Director of Broadband at Virgin Media, said:

This is a milestone moment for Virgin Media with 150 Tube stations and more than two and a half million devices now connected to Wi-Fi on London Underground. Tube passengers have loved the Wi-Fi service ever since we launched in time for London 2012. Now they can benefit from live travel information, news and social media in Tube stations across the capital.

Free access to the Virgin Media Wi-Fi network is just one of the benefits to signing up for a Virgin Media Broadband service. To find out more about the Ultrafast Cable broadband provider, why not head over to the dedicated provider page now?
