Almost every London Underground station now has WiFi

Social Media Life

In case you hadn't noticed, Virgin Media is still expanding its WiFi service on the London Underground. The company says it's recently flicked the switch at 100 new stations, including end-of-the-line stops like Edgware, Cockfosters and Stanmore. That brings its grand total up to 250 stations, which is only 20 shy of a complete roll-out. That's if you're only counting the stations themselves, anyway. It's still basically impossible to connect to the service while you're actually on a train, hurtling down a tunnel. That hasn't stopped people from connecting while they're on the platform or waiting to depart though -- Transport for London (TfL) says daily data consumption has jumped from 3TB to 20TB over the last 12 months, with more than half a million devices logging on each day. It's not perfect, but it'll do until there's finally 3G and 4G coverage below the surface.
