Transit Wireless plans to complete the installation of Wi-Fi in all 277 subway stations across New York City, by the end of 2016, according to New York City Wired.
“Transit Wireless is working on an accelerated schedule to bring Wi-Fi service to all 277 underground stations in the Metropolitan Transportation Authority subway system by the end of 2016,” Nathan Cornish, director of product development at Transit Wireless, said. “We’re also working with our wireless carrier partners to connect cellular service in all of these stations as early as possible.”
Transit Wireless, a BAI Communications company, began the project in 2011 and is completing it ahead of schedule. Working with AT&T, Sprint, T Mobile, and Verizon, the system provides access for more than five million sessions per month.
