Inking a deal with Virgin Media similar to that already offered to Vodafone and EE customers, O2 subscribers will now be able to access Virgin’s underground web infrastructure at no extra cost as of June. Details on how to sign up will be sent to all customers in due course.

It’s becoming a very healthy network underground, with Virgin Media adding a further 12 stations to the service this week, including Bank, Earls Court and Baker street, bringing the total number of connected stations up to 120.

With Virgin, Vodafone, EE (taking in T-Mobile and Orange too) and now O2 all covered by the underground network gratis, that leaves just Three users out in the cold. They still have to pay additional fees in order to access the service.
