Finally, New York City subway stations will be wired with cell phone service. We say finally, because NYC is practically the last big city to have cell phone service underground. Services began in 2006 for San Francisco, and in 2007 for Boston subway stations.
For now, there will be six stations that receive the service this coming Tuesday. The stations will be located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.
The carriers providing service will be AT&T and T-Mobile. Sprint and Verizon customers will have to wait.
This is a great addition to the underground highway of NYC, although we cant jump up and down just yet. The signals will cover the platforms and mezzanines of the stations, however only extend a short way into the tunnel.
Transit Wireless, the company doing the wiring, has five years to complete services at the other 271 stations in the subway system.
