VoIP users in London could connect on The Tube

The rapid improvement of the Wi-Fi network on The Tube in London could allow many business users to keep in touch with their office on the move.

Broadbandchoices.co.uk has revealed there has been a significant boost in the speed of Wi-Fi on the London Underground since its introduction before the 2012 Olympic Games.

The firm indicated a 44 per cent increase in speeds since the original roll-out, which means some professionals could make use of voice-over internet protocol (VoIP) technology on The Tube.

Dominic Baliszewski described London's Tube Wi-Fi as "an unsung hero of the Olympics".

In the future, the infrastructure is likely to prove popular with London businesses, as it will allow staff to stay connected every single day even when they are not in the office.

Employees of businesses using the latest VoIP solutions will be able to make calls from Tube stations and keep collaboration and business continuity going from under the capital.
