O2 Offers Free Outdoor Wi-Fi in London

LONDON -- From today, tourists, visitors and Londoners alike can enjoy free O2 Wifi in some of the busiest parts of London. Iconic areas such as Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Exhibition Road are amongst the seven squares and shopping streets benefiting from the landmark deal between Westminster City Council, the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and communications provider O2.

Running at no cost to the council or the taxpayer, the scheme enables millions of people living in or visiting the capital to enjoy fast, free, reliable wifi whilst out and about. O2 Wifi is free for everyone, regardless of network or broadband provider and once registered, customers will be automatically connected each time they enter a coverage area. With over a million visitors and commuters daily and a 13% increase[1] expected during the Summers’ festivities the new network will enable Londoners and visitors to the city share their pictures and updates of the events, or check on transport links, for free.

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: "With millions of extra people coming to town for the Games, we want to ensure we showcase the capital as the best city in the world to work and visit, and the addition of free Wifi to some of our most popular landmarks is crucial in helping to maintaining that reputation."
