London Tube Gets Wi-Fi Ahead of 2012 Olympics

Wi-Fi Internet access will be installed on a trial basis in a London Underground station. Officials are hoping to have wireless Internet access in the entire system by the 2012 Summer Olympics.

The six month trial will bring wi-fi connectivity to the ticket hall and both the Bakerloo and Northern line platforms.

It will be free for BT broadband customers and for mobile users with free wi-fi minutes.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson wants to see widespread mobile coverage.

The Charing Cross trial begins on 1 November.
