Wi-Fi now at 41 London Tube stations

Virgin Media launched its Wi-Fi service for the London Underground four weeks ago and the glorious internet now extends through 40 stations.

100,000 passengers travelling around London by Tube have taken advantage of the service, sending one million tweets, Facebook posts, emails and webpages in a week, according to Virgin Media research.

Kevin Baughan, director of metro wireless at Virgin Media, said: 'Londoners and visitors are loving our new Wi-Fi service and we’re on track to connect Tube journeys right across London ahead of the Games.'

The Wi-Fi service is totally free throughout the summer, after which Virgin Media will continue to offer free access to its Wi-Fi portal with Transport for London (TfL) travel information, and London news and entertainment.

Other network operators and internet service providers will have the opportunity to wholesale the service from Virgin to offer to their customers, while existing Virgin customers – broadband and mobile – will have full, free access to the service. Users can also pick a pay-as-you-go option to hop online.

Virgin Media says it will extend to 120 stations by the end of the year. For now, here are the 41 stations already internet-friendly:
