London tube getting WiFi for 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.
