Virgin Media has added 11 new London Underground stations to its WiFi network, bringing the total number of stops hooked up to 103.
The new stations include; Gloucester Road, Tooting Bec, Highbury & Islington, Tooting Broadway, Kentish Town, Hampstead, Great Portland Street, Redbridge, Hammersmith (District & Piccadilly), Blackhorse Road and South Wimbledon.
This week saw the service become pay as-you-go for some users, however those on EE, T-Mobile, Orange and Vodafone will still benefit from the service free of charge – as will existing Virgin Media customers.
Originally introduced for last summer’s Olympic Games, the network has steadily grown over the past six months with plans to push it live at a total of 120 stations by the end of March 2013.
