When it comes to accessing the Internet on mobile devices, few places are more inconvenient than the London underground. Thankfully, since mobile network Three have rolled out free Wi-Fi across 130 stations, members can now obtain free connections while underground.
The service, which is provided by Three and Virgin Media is only available to Three mobile phone network members. The service is free and unlimited, so you can browse or download as much as you like. A registration is required before you can begin using the network. Firstly, you’ll need to obtain a “My3” account while above ground, which can be done by accessing the “get it now” link on this page.
Please note: it can take anywhere up to 48 hours for the account to become fully active, so bear this in mind before heading to the tube. Once the account has been activated, you can connect at a participating tube station to “Virgin Media Wi-Fi”. You’ll need to open up your browser and enter a few other details before connecting, but after registering this only takes a few moments.
It is unclear at this stage whether other mobile networks will begin rolling out Wi-Fi in the London Underground or if this is an exclusive deal. Keep your eyes peeled for further information!
