Following a successful test at the Charing Cross station, the plan now is to equip around 120 subterranean stations by 2012. WiFi will be available in the station only, so once you start moving about the city you might lose your signal. There’s talk about adding cellular and WiFi to the tunnels and rail lines themselves, but as of now, nothing is a definite.
Sure, reception everywhere is probably the ultimate goal, but for now, we’re certainly pleased to hear that WiFi is at least starting to make its way to the London Underground.
