London Underground Virgin Wi-Fi service can easily stream iPlayer content
Virgin's Wi-Fi service will be free for all customers over the summer, becoming chargeable after the Olympics have ended. It is clearly intended for social networking and emailing, despite the impressive download speeds, as there is typically not much time to do more between Tube trains.
Nevertheless, in our testing Virgin's service had no problem dealing with tasks such as running Flash-heavy websites or watching Coast on BBC iPlayer.
