Virgin Media Public WiFi Could Launch Soon In UK



Virgin Media is looking at options to roll out public WiFi In the UK to ease the burden placed on mobile phone networks. In recent years, perhaps since the launch of the iPhone, mobile phone networks have had to cope with far more data usage than ever before. With Twitter, Facebook and other popular websites being accessed on the go, the burden is not going to lower any time soon.

The system will work by installing a wireless router in locations near the Virgin Media green boxes. These will allow users to connect right up to the cable network for broadband access at speeds up to 5MBps.

There could be three options in terms of paying for the service.  Virgin Mobile and Home Broadband users with Virgin, it is expected to be a free service.

For non clients, a Pay as You Go or subscription model will be made available. Also Virgin Media plans to talk with local councils as they could also take part of the payment.
