London Underground passengers will be able to tap into Wi-Fi networks at 80 of the 217 tube stations within a few months and 127 stations by the end of the year.

The cost of installing antennas would have been extremely high as the lack of space between the trains and the tunnels would have required extensive construction work, according to the BBC.
