London Underground confident of WiFi roll-out in time for Olympics

Mobile Marketing magazine has an exclusive statement from Gareth Powell, Transport for London’s director of strategy and service development, in which he says London Underground expects to have WiFi service in place in time for this summer’s Olympic Games.

Last March, London Underground invited telecoms companies to tender for providing public WiFi service in tube stations by June 2012. Connectivity would be available in up to 120 stations, although not necessarily on trains. The winning bidder was originally expected to be announced last year.

Mr Powell is quoted as saying the chosen WiFi provider will now be announced in early Spring.
