This is VIRGIN MEDIA London Between 17:00 AND 00:45

Virgin Media is all set to provide free Wi-Fi in the London underground during Olympics 2012. The unlimited Wi-Fi internet access will be offered for the entire summer season. After the end of the 2012 Olympics, the free service will be restricted to Transport for London (TfL) travel information via a new online portal, according to IBTimes.

However Virgin Media broadband and mobile subscribers will still enjoy unlimited internet access for free but others who demand more will have to subscribe to different paid plans. By the summer Wi-Fi connectivity will be available in more than 80 Tube stations in London. 40 other stations will be added later but by the end of this year.
