You too can view YouTube on the Tube
Some of you might think this was only a matter of time, but Wi-Fi, or web browsing on the Tube is coming.
In China passengers can even surf the Web on planes!
Transport for London have partnered with BT in a six month trial to allow wi-fi access to commuters at Charing Cross station.
Important to note that you won't get it on the trains, but you'll be able to check emails and browse the web in the ticket hall and on the Bakerloo and Northern line platforms.
However, it is the first step in the direction of passengers being able to use the internet underground across the network, and has been mooted before (see my post on using your mobile for calling underground).
Some of you with smartphones may have picked up the network 'Free Public wi-fi' on the trains, but this doesn't lead anywhere (not in my experience certainly). I'd be interested to know what that is!
I'm sure a number of faithful readers would welcome this move. Is it a good thing? Isn't the Tube a safe haven from being contacted?
By the way, referring to the blog titIe I should stipulate that other websites are available. Just couldn't resist the word play...
