Virgin Media adds new WiFi stations

150 stationsLiberty Global-owned UK cable operator Virgin Media has started providing WiFi coverage in six new London Underground stations, taking the total number of stations covered to 150. 

WiFi connectivity can now be enjoyed in Wimbledon, Richmond, Morden, East Ham, Barking and Upminster Underground stations.

According to Virgin Media, over 2.5 million devices are now registered and more than 3TB of data consumed over the network every day. The most active spot across the service is the Waterloo & City Line platform at Waterloo station. Kings Cross and Oxford Circus are the overall busiest stations.

“This is a milestone moment for Virgin Media with 150 Tube stations and more than two and a half million devices now connected to WiFi on London Underground. Tube passengers have loved the WiFi service ever since we launched in time for London 2012. Now they can benefit from live travel information, news and social media in Tube stations across the capital,” said Joe Lathan, director of broadband at Virgin Media.
