32 more London Underground stations gain access to free Wi-Fi

Another 32 London Underground stations now have access to free Wi-Fi from Virgin Media.

Virgin Media has rolled out free wireless internet access to a further 32 stations on the London Underground network.

Some 38 Tube stations have now been connected to the service, with the cable company promising to deploy the technology to as many as 80 stations by the start of the Olympics and 120 by the end of 2012.

Transport for London has published a map showing the latest locations to gain access to free Wi-Fi from Virgin Media, including Paddington, Stratford and Southfields.

On June 7th, King's Cross and Warren Street became the first Underground stations where the service went live, followed over the next two days by Oxford Circus, Green Park, Victoria and Euston.

The majority of stations to have been hooked up so far are clustered in central London, although the service has also gone live at stops such as Brixton and West Ham.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson has backed the Wi-Fi network to cement London's status as Europe's "leading digital city".

"Our partnership with Virgin Media to make Wi-Fi available on Tube platforms will be of tremendous benefit, as building world-class connectivity is critical to supporting new businesses and the jobs they create," he added.
