London to Outfit Subway with WiFi for 2012 Games

Comstock/Thinkstock(LONDON) -- The world's oldest subway system will be getting a high tech upgrade in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games.

Organizers have decided to outfit "the tube,' as the subway system is referred to in London, with WiFi Internet access in 120 stations.

For most spectators, the quickest way to get to the various venues will be via subway. WiFi was tested in one station, and now officials are offering tenders to WiFi providers.

Internet access should be up-and-running for Londoners a few months before the games begin.
