HK's MTR gets wi-fi
Hong Kong's modern, gleaming, air-conditioned, punctual underground rail network, the MTR, is now even further advanced than its London counterpart thanks to the introduction of a pay wi-fi service for passengers. Cost is rumoured to be HK$20 (or roughly GBP1.40) per day for access.

Meanwhile, if you travel on London's tube network your options for passing the time are :
- trying to find a discarded free newspaper that looks reasonably free of disease and/or footprints.
- finding new ways to breathe without inhaling the body odour of the person next to you.
- staring at people/avoiding eye contact with person staring at you.
