Free Wi-Fi now available on the London Eye
O2 has announced the World’s first free, HD Wi-Fi network on a continually moving structure, allowing visitors of the London Eye to capture and share their experiences as they go around – irrelevant of the country they are from or the network provider they use.
“We’re delighted to help Merlin Entertainments take their customers’ experiences to new heights. Our innovative, high density O2 Wifi solution is a world-first, offering seamless connectivity for customers throughout the iconic London Eye adventure. So whether it’s sharing a selfie, posting a photo of the stunning skyline or finding information about London attractions, visitors will be able to do this seamlessly and for free as they go around.” – Robert Franks, Director of Digital at O2.
The system has been designed to beam Wi-Fi coverage between 16 fixed access points on the iconic London Eye structure, without using fixed cables or satellite technology. To access the service, you simply need to register using your mobile number, while O2 customers will be connected automatically.
With views as far as Windsor Castle, it’s no surprise the Coca-Cola London Eye is the UK’s most popular paid for visitor attraction. With O2’s free Wi-Fi as yet another perk, alongside the 4D Cinema and interactive Samsung Galaxy Tab guides, we’re excited to see what other technology updates the London Eye will take advantage of in the future.
