Yesterday we saw the first ever tweet to be sent from Virgin Media’s newly installed London Underground Wi-Fi system, and now we have a list of the initial 80 stations that are lined-up to see the service go live this summer.
As well as world famous stations like Oxford Circus and Leicester Square, smaller stations such as Bethnal Green and Mile End will benefit from the scheme.
“The first stations include some of our busiest and most well-known destinations and we’re on-track for a successful launch this summer – all delivered at no additional cost to fare payers or tax payers,” said Gareth Powell of London Underground.
However, the service doesn’t extend to the trains themselves, so you’ll have to get your status updates away before your ride arrives.
Virgin Media reckons 120 stations will be packing Wi-FI connectivity once the project is completed, but here’s the initial list of 80 stations where you can expect to get online whilst underground this summer:
Edgware Road (Circle)
Elephant & Castle
High Street Kensington
Highbury & Islington
Hyde Park Corner
Kentish Town Kings Cross/St Pancras
St James Park
St Johns Wood
