Sprint LTE Hits The Bronx and Brooklyn July 30
Sprint today announced that its LTE 4G network will be available to two of New York City's five boroughs beginning July 30. Residents of The Bronx and Brooklyn will soon be able to access LTE and improved 3G service, but those living in Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island will have to wait until later this year. In addition to partially lighting up LTE in NYC, Sprint said that it has finalized an agreement with Transit Wireless, which will see Sprint service added to all 277 NYC subway stations over time. The first 36 stations, sprinkled around midtown Manhattan, will go live in early 2014, with others to follow. Sprint said it is on pace to provide 200 million people with LTE by the end of 2013.
NYC Reaches Full Cellular Coverage In All Subway Stations
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced that by January 9th, all underground subway stations in New York City will have cellular and Wi-Fi coverage. The system was built and is maintained by Transit Wireless, which confirmed to Phone Scoop that this milestone includes all four major wireless carriers, at all covered stations.
Transit Wireless Brings Service to 20 Stations In the Bronx
Transit Wireless today said it has completed Phase 4 of its project to bring cellular and WiFi service to subway stations across New York City. Phase 4 adds coverage to 20 stations in the Bronx, as well as 17 stations in Manhattan.
Transit Wireless to Start Phase 3 of NYC Subway Project
Transit Wireless and the New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority today said more New York City residents will gain access to cellular service when using the subway. To start, Transit Wireless has completed Phase 2 of the project, which means 11 new stations in Manhattan and 29 stations in Queens are now connected with cellular and Wi-Fi service.
NYC Adopts App-Based Parking Payments
New York City this week made it possible to pay for parking via smartphone. ParkNYC is an app that motorists can use to register their car with the NYC parking system and make payments for parking spots in midtown Manhattan.
Worst LTE deployment ever
Seriously what the phuck is wrong with Sprint? Always have good ideas but always fail to deliver. Even T-Mo who is much smaller than they are has the NYC metro area covered. Incompetence at it's best
Competition is good in every industry. It be nice if Sprint, T-Mobile and all smaller carriers would upgrade their networks to LTE and put some pressure on AT&T and Verizon. It would be nice if the big 2 would finally feel the pressure and feel like they need to lower their prices to keep consumers instead of thinking they can keep rising prices.
