Virgin Media has announced that its WiFi service on the London Underground will remain free throughout 2012.
Over 661,000 people are now online underground, with Waterloo, Victoria, King's Cross, and Oxford Circus some of the busiest connected Tube stations.
Virgin's WiFi service is available in 72 London Underground stations, with more stations due to be brought online in 2012. Virgin's WiFi portal with TfL travel information, updates and London news and entertainment was originally only going be free to acccess during the Olympics.
Jon James, executive director of broadband at Virgin Media, said: "WiFi on London Underground has been an incredible success with hundreds of thousands of people kept up-to-date and entertained whilst travelling around our capital city. Commuters and visitors will be able to make use of the internet throughout 2012 and we're in positive talks with potential wholesale partners to ensure a fantastic experience for all Tube passengers throughout 2012 and beyond."
From next year, Virgin Media's broadband and mobile subscribers will continue to have full online access and Virgin Media is engaged with potential wholesale partners to provide the service to their own customers on an ongoing basis.
