The Tube WiFi was launched in 2012 after the contract was won by Virgin Media. The service only works at stations and not in the tunnels and the latest stations to be added to the network are Upminster, Barking, Wimbledon, Richmond, Morden and East Ham.

The service is free to use for all customers on Virgin Media, Vodafone, O2, Three, EE, T-Mobile and Orange. But is also accessible as a paid for service

Joe Lathan, Director of Broadband at Virgin Media, said: “This is a milestone moment for Virgin Media with 150 Tube stations and more than two and a half million devices now connected to WiFi on London Underground.

“Tube passengers have loved the WiFi service ever since we launched in time for London 2012. Now they can benefit from live travel information, news and social media in Tube stations across the capital.”

According to Virgin Media, over 2.5 million devices are now registered and more than 3TB of data consumed over the network every day.
