Virgin Media’s free Wi-Fi on London Underground ends

Three and O2 customers to be charged a minimum of £2 per day, whilst Virgin, Vodafone and EE (including T-Mobile and Orange) customers will continue to enjoy free access

Virgin Media’s free London Underground Wi-Fi service ends today but Virgin, EE, Orange and T-Mobile, can stay connected due to wholesale agreements announced in November.

Users will be required to pay £2 for a daily pass, £5 for a weekly pass and £15 for a monthly pass. All passengers will continue to have free access to Virgin’s Wi-Fi portal, with updated Transport for London updates and London entertainment and news.

Also, passengers taking the monthly pass next month will receive three months of free Wi-Fi for the price of one.

An additional 11 stations are coming online this week, including Hampstead, Tooting Broadway and Great Portland Street, taking the total number of connected stations to 103. Around 120 stations are due to be connected by the end of March.

Virgin Media launched the Wi-Fi service on London Underground in the weeks leading up to the London 2012 Olympic Games, making it available to all Tube passengers for free last year.
