If you are an 02 customer in the UK, the company has announced new Wi-Fi access for users at no additional cost. 02 announced this week that it has joined forces with Virgin Media to give O2 customers free Wi-Fi access on the London Underground. O2 isn't the only wireless provider in England offering free Wi-Fi on subways.
EE, Vodafone, and Virgin Media itself have been offering customers access to Wi-Fi at Wi-Fi equipped London Underground stations. O2 says that its customers who happen to be using Wi-Fi equipped tube stations will be able to access the service once they register their details in the web browser when connected to Virgin Media WiFi at one of over 100 Wi-Fi connected stations.
With 02 now giving its customers access to Wi-Fi at participating underground stations, the only major carrier in the UK not offering free Wi-Fi for subway users is Three. Currently the only way Three customers can get access at the stations is to sign up for the Virgin Media pay as you go plan. That plan costs £2 per day's worth of service.
If you need more than a day, £5 will get you a week worth of service and £15 is good for a month. It's also worth noting that Version Media announced this week that 12 more underground stations will be getting Wi-Fi this month. The additional stations include Action Town, Baker Street, Bank, Caledonian Road, Earl's Court, Holland Park, Ladbroke Grove, Maida Vale, Queen's Park, Shepherd's Bush, Sloan Square and West Ruislip.
