The glorious, free Wi-Fi honeymoon period enjoyed by Londoners in many of the city’s stations is about to end, with Virgin Media announcing the full list of prices commuters will have to pay to carry on using it through 2013.
There will be three options when it comes to hurriedly downloading reading material when the train stops at a station to squeeze more sardines into its mobile tins. £2 for one day of access, £5 for a week or £15 for a month. Depending on the length of your commute and how much time you spend milling about on platforms, that’s might be pretty good deal.
The news comes as Virgin announces that another 20 stations have now joined the service, taking the number of Wi-Fi enabled spots that’ll soon be usable by EE and Vodafone customers up to 92. New additions include Camden Town, Mornington Crescent, Balham, Clapham Common, and Russell Square.
