London underground: news roundup 24.02.14

cropped-a-view-from-the-interior.jpgHere’s today’s roundup on all the latest underground news, from 3D data maps to getting lost on the tube.

It’s good news for commuters on the wi-fi this week, as Virgin Media rolls out the wireless internet to another 10 underground stations.

And in the aftermath of the tube strikes, this feature from the BBC takes a look at the issues behind it; the fight for the future of the underground has begun.

For something a little bit cool and interactive, take a look at this new 3D map that has been made from London Underground, which includes seeing the trains move in real time. Awesome.

And finally, check out this inspiring and sweet story about a Londoner who lost his Romanian father on the underground when he was visiting.
