Virgin Media Wi-Fi now in 150 London Underground stations

Virgin Media has announced that it is now providing free Wi-Fi to 150 London Underground stations.

The UK media company first launched its London Underground Wi-Fi service in June 2012, just in time for the 2012 London Olympics.

Now Virgin has added six new stations to the roster to round it out to a neat 150: Wimbledon, Richmond, Morden, East Ham, Barking and Upminster.

Virgin reckons that there are now 2.5 million devices registered to use its free service in the UK's capital city, and that more than 3TB of data is consumed through it every day. That's enough data to download 52,000 albums, apparently.

King's Cross St Pancras is said to be the busiest station of the lot, with an average of 50GB of data downloaded every day. Meanwhile, the Waterloo & City Line platform at Waterloo station is the single busiest Wi-Fi spot on the network.

Virgin's London Underground service is available for free to Virgin Media broadband and mobile subscribers, as well as to anyone on EE, O2, Vodafone, and Three. So that's 95 percent of people in Greater London and, we dare say, the vast majority of people in the UK too.

For the few who can't access it, Virgin Media provides daily (£2), weekly (£5), and monthly (£15) PAYG passes to its London Underground Wi-Fi service.
