They said it was AT&T and T-Mobile. And that negotiations are still underway for Verizon and Sprint. Since AT&T & T-Mobile are GSM and Verizon & Sprint are CDMA, I'd bet the author of this article got it wrong since they're likely putting in one type of system first for the experiment.

I was in Hong Kong in 2004. Cellular service was already subway system wide everywhere over there. People were yacking away on the trains and could call in emergencies from ANYWHERE within the tunnel. If we're so terrorism watch worthy here, then why the f*ck aren't they installing it THROUGHOUT the entire NYC subway system?

I don't know, how about because, you know, building a cellular network takes times and can't be done instantaneously?

Try it in one place, see how it works, and then expand.....sounds logical to me.

Then explain why in Hong Kong for the past 7 years they have had it.
Sure their system is not as expansive as the NYC system, hence the time factor involved but the bureaucracy involved in the states no one can hold a stick to.
