New York's MTA has announced a ten-year plan to expand cellular service to all 418 miles of subway tunnels in New York City. The project is a partnership with Transit Wireless, which already provides cellular and Wi-Fi service at all 281 underground stations. The $600 million project to add service between stations will allow uninterrupted connectivity as passengers move through the system. The announcement comes after the MTA and Transit Wireless successfully launched a pilot project in 2020 that brought cellular service to the L train tunnel connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. The new project will also expand Wi-Fi service to all above-ground stations. Transit Wireless will pay for the new infrastructure and the MTA is expected to benefit financially from the deal, to the tune of $410 million.
