Tube passengers can now get online in 150 London Underground stations, following the addition of another six stations (Wimbledon, Richmond, Morden, East Ham, Barking and Upminster) to Virgin Media’s WiFi on London Underground service.

People are using the popular service more than ever, with over 2.5 million devices now registered and more than 3TB of data consumed over the network every day. That’s enough data to download more than 52,000 music albums or around 9,000 TV shows.

The spot that sees the most activity across the entire service is the Waterloo & City Line platform at Waterloo station1. Kings Cross and Oxford Circus are the overall busiest stations.

Joe Lathan, Director of Broadband at Virgin Media, comments: “This is a milestone moment for Virgin Media with 150 Tube stations and more than two and a half million devices now connected to WiFi on London Underground. Tube passengers have loved the WiFi service ever since we launched in time for London 2012. Now they can benefit from live travel information, news and social media in Tube stations across the capital.”
