Virgin Media Lands Contract to Bring Internet Connectivity to London Underground Platforms

Over in the London, they call their subways London Underground and soon subway riders will be able to get Internet connectivity that most of my city lacks. Virgin Media has been awarded a contract to provide Wi-Fi access on the underground platforms in time for the London Olympic Games. Naturally, London will be swarming with people in town for the games looking for web access.

The service will be available in 80 stations by July and then in 120 overall by the end of year. The Wi-Fi connection will only work on the platforms, not in trains. "Millions of passengers will now be able to connect to their work, friends or access the latest news and travel information whilst on the move," said London mayor Boris Johnson.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
