These Are the London Tube Stations You'll Be Able to Get Free Wi-Fi In

By Sam Gibbs on at

After seeing what kind of speeds we can get on Virgin's new tube Wi-Fi network while no one else is on them, we now know which 80 stations you'll actually be able to grab the sweet, free, underground internet in before August.

Oxford Circus, Leicester Square and King's Cross headline the 80 stations in central London, but stations as far out as Wimbledon Park, Heathrow, Wembley and Elephant & Castle will also be able to sip from the cup of free Wi-Fi. Virgin's currently stress testing stations with "hundreds of devices" to try and simulate rush hour. I'm thinking you'll need thousands of the things to really test it, judging by just how absolutely crammed-like-sardines some stations get.

It's still not going to be much good to you as you hurtle through the tunnels on the tube, but at least you'll be able to find out if your tube is buggered while on the platform underground. I guess you'll also now be able to sit down and watch last week's Have I Got News For You, if you're going to be delayed forever. [Virgin]
