WiFi, Internet service in all NYC subway stations

- Wi-Fi and Internet service is now available in all underground subway stations for users of any of the four major cell service carriers: AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile.  

Gov. Andrew Cuomo made the announcement Thursday. 

"By bringing Wi-Fi and cell service underground ahead of schedule, we are re-imagining our subway stations to meet the needs of the next generation," Governor Cuomo said. "This will better connect New Yorkers who are on-the-go and build on our vision to reimagine the country's busiest transportation network for the future. I thank all of our partners."

The underground WiFi and Internet service is available one year ahead of schedule.

Transit Wireless has a 27-year partnership agreement with the MTA to design, build, operate and maintain cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity in the underground subway stations.

The company says it is investing well over $300 million into this infrastructure project and is sharing revenues derived through the services with the MTA. The project is being built at no cost to taxpayers or subway customers.
