Three UK are bringing WiFi to London Underground.

If you are a resident of London or travel here quite frequently you will know that the Underground system has WiFi now, for most mobile operators. When I say ‘most’, I mean Virgin struck deals with O2, Vodafone and EE, but Three customers were left in the cold, until now.

Three has now signed an agreement with Virgin which will bring WiFi to 137 stations for all Three customers for free – great news for Three customers (myself included), as it means we can all carry on playing Farmville while sweating on the Tube.

According to an interview with Danny Dixon, Three’s director of customer strategy, we should have this up and running by the end of July.

Sticking with Three, they have also refreshed their current sim-only plans, giving them a choice of more data or minutes. Personal Hotspot allowance has changed from 2gb to 4gb of data, along with 0800/0500 numbers being completely free.

Tom Malleschitz, Three’s Marketing Director has said;

People want choice and control so they are able to enjoy their devices without worrying about bill shock. These SIM-only plans give them exactly that. They’ll also benefit from free 0800 numbers and with Feel At Home customers can use the internet and call and text home while in Australia, France, Italy, the USA and twelve other countries out of their UK allowance.”

The cheapest sim-only plan from Three now offers 0.5GB of data along with all you can eat texts and 200 minutes of calls for £7 a month. Three have seemingly raised the prices on some of the smaller plans but cut prices on the said all you can eat data plans from £20 to £18.
