We do know that London’s Underground stations will be introducing their own Wi-Fi services later this year, and it has been a long time in coming, but at least it is being done – the first stations with has been announced. Of course, in the course of the coming weeks, Wi-Fi services will be offer across some of the city’s busiest stations, ranging from Oxford Circus to Liverpool Street, London Bridge and Kings Cross. Before 2012 is over, over 120 different Tube stations ought to be up and running with Wi-Fi connectivity. Those who want to take advantage of the service will be able to make use of the Wi-Fi connection whenever they are on a station platform, but forget about it if you are going to do so through the tunnels as no signal will be present.

The exact dates remain to be seen, and TfL is more than confident that the service ought to be up and running without a hitch when it happens. Famous last words, I say, as you know that Murphy is able to strike when you least expect him to. Virgin Media will be the service provider of choice, and capacity testing was recently conducted at Chancery Lane Underground station.
