The UK's Virgin Media has announced the expansion of its Wi Fi network on London's underground railway network.
The company had added ten more stations to its coverage, taking the total to 131 stations, and a further ten stations are planned.
The service is available to Virgin Mobile customers, and through a wholesale agreement, also to customers of O2, EE and Vodafone. At the moment, Three is the only mobile network signed up to the service.
The 10 new stations now covered are West Hampstead, Finchley Central, Leytonstone, Wanstead, White City, Leyton, Newbury park, Plaistow, Finchley Road and Upton Park.
The next ten stations are still to be confirmed.
The London Underground has 270 stations, although most of them are in fact above ground and able to access cellular networks.
