WiFi on the Underground: a possibility?

By: rhelan | 28-08-2014 23:51

Hi all,


It has come to my attention, now that Three has joined the list of other mobile networks which can access Virgin Media's WiFi on the London Underground, including o2. With this in mind, would it be possible to add giffgaff to the list? I'm running out of reasons not to switch to Three these days.

Afternoon all,

Some great news for you all today - we've officially launched our beta of WIFI access on the Underground. This means you'll be able to give it a whirl and get a hold of some internet whilst you're below the streets of London, waiting for your Tube.

It's worth following our resident giffgaffer Gary's thread here for all the information including guidance and where to get support if you need a hand. We're currently after feedback so if you find anything you need to let us know about, you can post on the thread mentioned and we'll try to fix any issues,

Congrats to @rhelan and all our members who supported this idea. Top work on these brilliant brain waves.

I live in London and Wifi on the underground is not great, you can only use it on platform, not on the tube whilst it's moving. I think it's not worth implementing as not everyone lives or uses the tube. It could be worked as an add-on.

Good idea but will lead to even more zombiesk people on the tubes.  I think it quite nice to enter a network free area - nobody can pester you for anything for that short period in time..... just me, myself and I

I thought that my phone already connected automatically to london underground wifi though to be honest i have never checked what provider it connected to. I dont understand why giff gaff people cant connect to the o2 service

Click on o2 and it should work
