Free WiFi has come to the West End
The council has joined forces with O2 to bring free WiFi to the busiest parts of the city at no cost to the taxpayer.
From July 2012, anyone who uses a smartphone or tablet device will be able to access WiFi, for free.
So you can now access the internet, check your emails and keep in touch on the move. Whether you are having a break and a bite to eat in Leicester Square, watching an event in Trafalgar Square or taking in the sights at the Houses of Parliament, free WiFi will be at your fingertips.
Where can I get Free WiFi?
Initially, free WiFi will be available in the following areas:
- Oxford Street
- Regent Street
- Trafalgar Square
- Leicester Square
- Piccadilly Circus
- Parliament Square
And it's likely that more areas will be added soon.
How can I use Free WiFi?
Look for O2 Wifi on your list of available networks on your device and follow the three easy steps to register.
Once you’ve signed-up, that’s it. No passwords or usernames necessary. Every time you come into an O2 WiFi area, you’ll be connected automatically.
What’s more, it won’t eat into your mobile’s data allowance. And you don’t even have to be an O2 customer to use it.
To see which Free WiFi areas are available right now, go to http://www.o2wifi.co.uk/my/hotspots and use their hotspot finder for the latest coverage.
You’ll also be able to use O2 Wifi in thousands of venues in London and across the UK in shops, cafes and bars.
