02 Hops on to London Underground

Virgin Media has signed up O2 as a wholesale partner for its WiFi on London Underground service, enabling O2 customers’ access to free London Underground WiFi from June.

As part of the deal, all existing O2 customers signed up to O2 WiFi will be automatically registered for free WiFi on the Underground, taking away the need to sign up above ground or remembering a password.

As well as getting access to free wifi at tube stations, O2 Pay Monthly customers will be able to use our latest innovation, TU Go which lets them use their existing number and tariff to make and receive calls, send and receive texts and use voicemail on up to five devices at the same time. If they have devices that are wifi-only, like tablets and laptops, or if they have wifi but no mobile coverage (like on tube platforms), they can use TU Go to connect to the O2 network. And they can call anyone – even if they don’t have TU Go.

Gary Booker, Head of Consumer at O2, said: “We’re excited to bring free Underground WiFi to O2 customers this summer. Our customers want to stay connected wherever they are and will soon be able to check their email, update their Facebook status, shop online, book their next holiday and stay connected to their friends and family right across Tube stations in Central London.”
