The Cloud are offering free Wi-Fi at 56 London Overground stations

Article by on Tuesday, 27 March 2012

If you are one of millions of commuters who pass through any one of the 56 of London Overground stations will be able to get an hour of Wi-Fi access free.

A deal has been signed by London Overground Rail Operations Limited and the BSkyB-owned venture, The Cloud, to provide an hour of free internet access to registered passengers. This should be rolled out by the end of 2012.

The Cloud access is an additional benefit usually offered to O2 customer at POS for new contracts.

It all kicks off this summer at stations including West Hampstead, Shepherd’s Bush, Wapping and Hackney Central.

A single registration is required and a pay-per-use service is available once that initial hour is up.

The news comes shortly after an announcement of a contract between London Underground and Virgin Media that will see free Wi-Fi coverage at 80 of London’s Underground Stations by the start of the Olympics.

This free service will also turn into a pay as you go service after the games.
