Virgin Media has now rolled out WiFi to 150 London Underground stations after bringing the service to six more stops on the network.

There are now 2.5 million registered users of the service, which is seeing 3TB of data downloaded over the network every day, Virgin said. The service was launched in 2012 in time for the London Olympics.
Bringing another six stations onto the WiFi network will allow even more residents and visitors to remain connected, according to Gareth Powell, London Underground’s director of strategy and service development.
"We’re delighted that 150 stations on the Tube now have WiFi which will help our customers benefit from live travel information, news and social media while they are on the move across the capital," he said.
Virgin also revealed that the busiest spot on the network is the Waterloo & City Line platform at Waterloo, while King's Cross and Oxford Circus are the busiest stations for passenger access.
Outside central London, Stockwell and Finsbury Park see some of the highest volumes as passengers get online to check emails, look up journey times and browse social media sites.
Access to the WiFi network is free for customers on Three, Vodafone, O2 and EE, while passes to access the network for those not on these services cost £2 a day, £5 a week or £15 for two months.
