Using the WiFi service

Hints and tips
- For the best experience, connect to the Virgin Media WiFi service in the ticket hall when you first enter a Tube station
- Your phone remembers the WiFi network you connect to most frequently. Open WiFi in your device settings and connect to WiFi in the Tube station ticket hall or platform to connect quickly
- It typically takes five seconds to connect to the Virgin Media WiFi service at a Tube station (this delay is due to a security feature). If you are trying to connect at a peak time in a busy station (when hundreds of other people are also trying to connect), it may take slightly longer
- If you aren’t able to connect to the WiFi network before you get on a Tube train, don’t try to connect on the train as you travel from station to station. To save battery life, some devices extend the time that they search for WiFi hotspots. It’s better to wait and connect when you get off the train
- If you are a Virgin Media, EE, O2, Three or Vodafone customer, please register for the service before trying to connect. Further information can be found via your mobile network operator’s website. Once you’ve registered, you’ll be able to connect to the WiFi service seamlessly
- If you have any queries or issues connecting please contact your mobile network operator
