Free wifi makes its way across London, literally

Posted at 2:00 pm, December 11, 2012 in News

Following the news that Virgin Media is extending its free Underground wifi coverage to include Vodafone and EE customers, a new startup are preparing to bring internet access to more parts of London’s ever-expanding free wifi network. Eyetease, a Tech City based startup, has received approval from TfL to install a high-speed wifi service in London’s iconic black cabs. CabWifi uses an ‘ads-for-access’ model that prompts users to watch a 15 seconds advert before they can access the internet. Eyetease will begin rollout of the CabWifi service in early 2013. Just another good excuse to treat yourself to a taxi ride home.  Jonno Hopkins
