During this summer’s Olympics wi-fi access will come to the London Underground system for the first time. Earlier this year, London Mayor Boris Johnson claimed that 80 stations would offer free wireless internet access to the public in time for the Olympics.

The wi-fi service will only be available on platforms and not on the trains.  It is expected to be popular with passengers offering them the opportunity to check on travel information, send emails and use social networking sites – basically anything to avoid contact with other commuters as is the way in the capital.

Virgin Media has been running tests as different underground station for the last few weeks and would appear almost ready to set it free.

A tweet has appeared online sent from one of the platforms to prove it works. BBC journalist and presenter Rory Cellan-Jones has posted a message on Twitter, claiming that he sent it from the bowels of London’s underground train service: “Historic first tweet from deep under London using @TFLofficial @virginmedia new tube wifi service – testing, testing,” it says.
