To access EE WiFi-Auto hotspots
Only phones and tablets with compatible SIMs can access the London Underground WiFi using EE WiFi-Auto hotspots.
On Apple devices – with the right software (iOS 7 and above) you’ll be able to automatically connect to EE WiFi-Auto and use the internet just by switching on your WiFi.
On compatible Android devices - Once underground, just turn on your WiFi and select EE WiFi-Auto from the list of available networks.
Then select the ‘access method’ as EAP, and ‘EAP method’ as SIM.
Please note – if the EAP method SIM isn’t available on your Android device, unfortunately your phone or tablet isn’t compatible with the EE WiFi-Auto network. However, you can still access Virgin Media WiFi.
After you've connected to WiFi on the Underground once, you'll automatically connect every time you enter a WiFi-enabled station (as long as your phone or tablet’s WiFi is switched on).
