TfL Brings Wi-Fi to 100 More London Underground Stations, Including Cockfosters

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

TfL has done something good. Hurrah! The transport manager, in partnership with Virgin Media, has brought Wi-Fi to 100 more London Underground stations, including Barons Court, Kilburn Park and Cockfosters. The service caters to Virgin Mobile and Virgin Media users, as well as EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three customers. It's now been introduced to 250 stations across the capital.

Right now, Virgin Media Wi-Fi is only available on platforms and in ticket halls, which means it's still impossible to use the service for streaming TV shows and movies while you're actually on the tube. Hopefully that'll be the next stage in the process. 

Virgin Media's latest figures show that an average of 20TB of data is consumed each day on the London Underground Wi-Fi network, representing a massive rise over the last year, from just 3TB a day. The average user is said to consume around 40MB on a daily basis.
