Will your tube station be getting free wi-fi this summer? Full station list revealed.

Will your tube station be getting free wi-fi this summer? Full station list revealed.

Virgin Media has promised to hook up no less than 80 London Underground tube platforms by the end of July, so you’ll soon be able to surf while you wait for the train.

There’s no wi-fi on the actual trains themselves, so you’ll only be able to take advantage of the connection when you’re within range of the station base platforms.

The full list includes of stations includes all the expected central London suspects like Oxford Circus, Euston and Victoria, along with a few lesser known stops thrown into the mix, and some stations close to the Olympic site.

“The first stations include some of our busiest and most well-known destinations and we’re on-track for a successful launch this summer – all delivered at no additional cost to fare payers or tax payers,” purred Gareth Powell of London Underground, keen to big up the achievement.

The wi-fi will remain free for everyone over the summer. After that, only Virgin Media broadband and mobile subscribers will be able to get access, with a PAYG option for non-customers, although the travel info portal will still be available free for all.

Virgin Media say that around 120 stations will be hooked up by the end of the year, but here’s the list of stations coming online in the summer.

  1. I’m not actually convinced by this. When was the last time you spent any length of time actually in Brixton tube station? The high frequency of trains means you are rarely waiting long- unlike a national rail station. And on arrival most people would make their way straight up and onto the street surely?

    Plus there is a mugging/pickpocket issue. I love Brixton but I’m sure you would agree the tube station is not really the place to be flashing expensive tech kit around. How long before someone is followed out the station, mugged round the corner with the mugger disappearing back into the crowds at the tube station.

    As long as no taxpayers or fare money is used, then fairy nuff, but I can’t see many people wanting to pay for this….
