Wireless customers to get free WiFi on London Underground in early 2013

Earlier today, EE announced on Twitter that customers would be able to receive free WiFi on the London Underground. There was also speculation that it would also include Virgin Media customers, and also provide free WiFi in 72 underground stations in London. Fast-forward through the day, and tweets were deleted, comments were declined from both parties, and it seemed like EE might’ve jumped the gun on the free WiFi announcement. 

Fortunately, EE and Virgin Media made an announcement alongside Vodafone that all of their customers would indeed be able to access free WiFi on London’s Underground rail network, just to clear everything up. If you aren’t a customer of one of those three carriers, you can still access the WiFi on a pay-as-you-go plan. But if you do happen to be a subscriber with one of those three, you’re in luck. Who doesn’t like free WiFi?

Do any of our readers regularly use the London tubes? Excited about this announcement?

    Fairly useless unless it works between stations…

    Nope, stations only (not all of them) – also £2/day for non-qualifing customers
