O2 to offer free WiFi in London's West End during Olympics
Date Posted: 27/07/12
Anyone on city breaks in London's West End during the London Olympics will be able to take advantage of free WiFi courtesy of O2.
The mobile network provider will be offering the service in the busiest parts of the capital, as part of a deal between Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea Councils.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson explained: "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 maintain that reputation."
Customers will be automatically connected when they enter a coverage area.
Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus WiFi will appeal to anyone on theatre breaks in London.
Anyone heading to the capital for the Games will have a host of theatre shows available to go to as well, including Sir Noel Coward's play Volcano which will run from Tuesday, August 14th to Saturday, September 29th.
