TeamRock breakfast team tests London Wi-Fi
TeamRock Radio’s Breakfast Show Host Stephen Hill is on Holiday this week so colleagues and former breakfast presenters Moose & JRock are trying something new.
They will attempt to broadcast the breakfast show on Friday 13th using only the Wi-Fi provided by London Underground.
At 7am the team will leave Southwark tube station and make their way east to Stratford in time for breakfast in McDonalds. The challenge will be to get from Southwark to Stratford before the show finishes and without missing a link.
Moose said: “Given our track record, this is destined for failure. But hey, why not!” JRock added: “Whatever Moose said, I’m thinking the opposite!”
The stations that the team plan to broadcast links from are: Southwark and Westminster on the Jubilee line, Westminster, Blackfriars, Cannon Street, Tower Hill, Aldgate and Liverpool Street on the Circle line, plus Liverpool Street, Bethnal Green, Mile End and then final destination Stratford on the Central line.
This challenge also supports a previous campaign the station created back in June 2013 for the UK Government to start the process of developing free internet access, nationwide, with the creation of ‘super WiFi’ networks, through providers such as EE, Three T-Mobile, O2 and Virgin coming together.
