Virgin Media has announced that its London Underground Wi-Fi network will remain free for the remainder of 2012.
The service was switched on ahead of the London Olympics at over 70 stations, with a total of 120 expected to be online before the year's end.
Virgin had planned to start charging for the service once the Paralympic Games were over but announced on Wednesday it would remain free until 2013.
The move will be met with glee by regular commuters on the Underground, with the service clearly proving hugely popular both during the Olympics and beyond.
On 27 September, Virgin reported seeing the busiest traffic day to date with over one million unique connections made across the network, and it continues to grow in use, with 1.12 million connections made on 12 October.
Gareth Powell, London Underground's director of strategy and service development, said the organisation was confident its work alongside Virgin would ensure all stations were hooked up before the year's end.
"Wi-Fi at tube stations is proving to be a very popular service with up-to-the-minute travel information and journey planner at passengers' fingertips," he said.
"There are already 72 London Underground stations online and our engineers are working in partnership with Virgin Media to continue the rollout in 2012."
Virgin confirmed it is also in talks with partners about the possibility of wholesaling the network. This could mean other providers could offer their customers access as a bundled service or add-on.
"We're in positive talks with potential wholesale partners to ensure a fantastic experience for all tube passengers throughout 2012 and beyond," added Jon James, executive director of broadband at Virgin Media.
