We all know its darn tootin’ annoin’ when you’re an O2 customer browsing our website trying to sell mobile devices at supercalifragilisticexpialidocious rates and suddenly WHAM into a tunnel you go and it’s goodbye connectivity. And apparently O2 know it too.
So from 22nd July, O2 will be offering free Wi-Fi on the Tube, joining the ranks of Virgin, EE and Vodafone. anyone registered with O2 will be able to connect at any of the 120 stations. And that means you can use your commute to sell camera, mobile, tablet or laptop devices via our lovely, lovely, service.
BUT you still can’t connect whilst moving between stations, which means you’ll have to cache, update, buffer, refresh and open new pages whist pulled into a station. But since the journey between stations is pretty minimal for the most part, it doesn’t appear to be too much of an issue. Our own CEO travels on the Tube daily and said it’s all pretty fluid.
