Reception to Improve for New York Transit Riders

Posted: Nov. 27th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

More than 30 stations are expected to see dramatically increased Wi-Fi and cellphone service in New York, a welcome boon to frequent mass transit commuters. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is already receiving praise for those stations which have received the upgrades, and despite complications brought on by Sandy, the upgrade is expected to be completed early 2013.

More than a year after underground Wi-Fi and cellphone service first came to a handful of subway station platforms, officials said Monday that 30 more stations would be connected by “the end of the first quarter of 2013.”

Transit Wireless, the company behind the project, had planned to complete work on these stations by the end of 2012, but said the rollout was delayed by Hurricane Sandy.
