NYC Underground Subway Stations To Have Internet & Cell-Phone Capability

sub.jpgAll NYC’s underground subway stations will wired for cell phones and wireless Internet service in the next six years under a plan the MTA announced Wednesday. It still needs approval from the agency’s board, but looks like it will get all approvals needed.

According to the Associated Press, a company called Transit Wireless would pay the $150 million to $200 million cost of wiring the stations, plus about $46 million in fees over 10 years to New York City Transit, a unit of the MTA.

Note: Just the stations will be wired, and not the tunnels themselves.
