Virgin Media Bringing Free WiFi to London

Posted Aug 4, 2011

Virgin Media’s CEO Neil Berkett announced in an address to investors that the company plans on providing free WiFi in London. As Engadget comments, “with only four percent market share, Virgin could certainly handle the extra traffic.” Other entities have made similar promises of municipal WiFi for London in the past, but the plans have yet to succeed.

The network would provide 0.5Mbps for free, while Virgin service subscribers would have access to speeds up to 10Mbps.
