Tube to get wi-fi before Games

London Underground passengers will be able to use wi-fi at 120 stations in time for the Olympics, a Transport for London boss has said. TfL oversaw a successful trial at Charing Cross last year, but there were fears of delays after telecoms firm Huawei pulled out of a deal to provide the network. But a new provider will be unveiled in spring, “leaving plenty of time for this to be delivered to customers in time for the 2012 Games”, TfL director of strategy Gareth Powell said in a statement.
