Cell Service to Expand to 30 NYC Subway Stations Next Year
Transit Wireless today announced that it will increase the availability of underground cellular service to a total of 30 New York City subway stations by the end of the first quarter of 2013. Some of the new stations set to receive wireless access include Times Square, Columbus Circle, and Rockefeller Center, all of which are major hubs in New York. So far, AT&T and T-Mobile USA have agreed to the expansion, though Transit Wireless is still holding discussions with Sprint and Verizon Wireless. Transit Wireless has provided service in six underground stations since late 2011. It says progress on the 30-station build out was delayed by the effects of Hurricane Sandy. Transit plans to eventually cover all 277 subway stations throughout New York City with wireless service.
