Earlier this week we wrote about the launch of 3g and Wi-Fi services on the Glasgow Subway. Not to be out done, TFL announced today that a wi-fi trial at Charing Cross station will begin November 1st.
The service will cover the ticket hall, Bakerloo and Northern line platforms, but similarly to the Cloud network in Glasgow, will not cover the trains themselves. The service will use TfL’s existing wireless network for staff, but will be operated by BT Openzone: according to their website, charges start from £5.99 for 90 minutes access.
If the service proves popular, we could soon seen Wi-Fi rolled out across the London Underground.
