This summer London Underground will be rolling out a Wi-Fi service at around a hundred and twenty stations, this follows a trail at Charing Cross that allowed travellers to access the internet while waiting for the next train to arrive. Of course, there is another reason for this roll out and that has to be the London 2012 Olympics, yet it seems that despite these claims London Underground do not appear to have any providers on board just yet.
According to Gareth Powell, who is TfL’s director of strategy and service development, he said;
“We are in the final stages of the tender process. London Underground is continuing with preparations to install the necessary infrastructure and is on schedule to complete the project as planned. An announcement of the chosen service provider will be made in early spring, leaving plenty of time for this to be delivered to customers in time for the 2012 Games.”
