Cellphone and Wi-Fi coverage is now being provided for commuters at each of New York City’s many underground subway stations, one year ahead of schedule.
All four major cellular service carriers, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, now have coverage in the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) underground stations, one year ahead of schedule. Wi-Fi had originally been scheduled for completion by the end of 2018.
MTA Chairman and CEO Thomas F. Prendergast said, “Connectivity is a big deal for our customers, and we’re thrilled to be delivering these vital services so far ahead of schedule.
Transit Wireless, a private firm, invested more than $300 million in the project, which comes at no cost to commuters and taxpayers.
