According to the BBC, Virgin will now be continuing to offer free wi-fi to London tube travellers until the end of the year.
After that, you’ll have to stump up some cash to use the service unless you’re a Virgin Broadband customer.
Virgin had originally suggested that the wi-fi was an Olympics-only freebie, so we’re rather chuffed to see the offer being extended into the dark winter months.
Truth is, we’ve got rather used to enjoying the free network underground and have become dab hands at quickly downloading web pages as our train progresses from station to station.
Here’s the Tweet from the BBC bearing the good news:
