 subway stations now have wireless voice and data communication capability allowing New York City subway riders to make and receive cell phone calls, send and receive texts and e-mail and access Wi-Fi underground. Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) officials were joined by executives from Transit Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile USA and Boingo Wireless to demonstrate the new capability at the City’s busiest station, Times Square.
Service is provided by Transit Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile USA and Boingo Wireless – but MTA reports that there are negotiations with Verizon and Sprint too.
Below is the list of subway stations that are presently equipped. Plans are underway to keep adding more and more underground stations. The next 40 stations, planned for completion in early 2014, include more stations in Manhattan and key stations in Queens.
