London Underground Wi-Fi services on track for summer launch

Keeping up to speed with what's going on in the workplace looks set to become a lot easier for workers in London as the Tube's Wi-Fi network is set to be completed on time.

Stations including Oxford Circus, Stratford, Liverpool Street, Leicester Square and King's Cross will be the first to launch the network that will keep flexible workers online while on the move around the capital.

According to Transport for London, the stations will have their Wi-Fi networks up and running by July, just in time for the Olympics.

Gareth Powell, London Underground's director of strategy and service development, said: "Our customers will soon be able to connect to the internet for live travel information while they are on the move through stations."

He added that bringing one of the oldest underground train networks into the 21st Century is progressing as planned.

"The first stations include some of our busiest and most well-known destinations and we’re on-track for a successful launch this summer – all delivered at no additional cost to fare payers or taxpayers," he concluded.
