Well, we did talk about Wi-Fi hotspots being banned from the London 2012 Olympics just a few days ago, but here we are with news that the O2 will be offering up free Wi-Fi to the city of London, just in time for the Olympics. With London expecting a huge number of tourists to the city, it is good news that the West End area, including Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus, will feature free Wi-Fi connectivity before July ends. This particular deal will be between O2, Westminster City Council and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The good news is this, you will not need to be a subscriber of O2 in order to take advantage of the free Wi-Fi connection.
You can start surfing for free wherever you are – all you need to do is simply register yourself, where you can then hook up automatically each time you are in range of a Wi-Fi hotspot. Tourists will find this free Wi-Fi connection to be especially useful, as it will definitely help one avoid some rather heavy hitting roaming charges.
The locations that will feature free Wi-Fi connection include Exhibition Road, High Street Kensington, Parliament Square, Trafalgar Square, Oxford Street, Regent Street, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus.
