Virgin Media has revealed that over eight million Wi-Fi connections were delivered on its London Underground network during the Olympic Games, from a total of 443,000 users.
The desire for the network match figures from other technology vendors who saw huge demands placed on their services during the event, including the BBC which saw over three petabytes of data requested.
No doubt the Wi-Fi service from Virgin was useful to visitors and locals alike, helping them check directions, weather forecasts, travel updates and results from the Games.
Indeed, Virgin revealed that Wednesday, 1 August, was the busiest day on the network, as thousands logged in to discover Britain had won its first gold medal, closely followed by a second thanks to Tour De France winner Bradley Wiggins.
The service is likely to come in for more heavy use in the next two weeks or so as the Paralympic Games begin, as Gareth Powell, London Underground's director of strategy and service development, noted.
"Wi-Fi at Tube stations helped keep everyone moving and entertained throughout the Games with up-to-the-minute travel information and journey planners at their fingertips," he said.
"It's proving to be a great service and we expect it to be very popular during the Paralympics too. We look forward to continuing the rollout and connecting up to 120 London Underground stations by the end of the year."
Currently, around 80 stations are online with the network, with a further 40 or so planned before the end of the year. By then, Virgin Media will have begun charging for the service, which is currently free.
