New York–NYC’s underground connectivity just gained another borough and 38 additional subway stations! Transit Wireless celebrates the completion of its Phase 4 expansion of wireless services, extending its capabilities to 21 underground subway stations in the Bronx and 16 in Manhattan.
Phase 4 of the cellular and Wi-Fi network build-out covers 38 underground MTA stations, including major MTA hubs such as Lexington Av-53rd St EM6, Lexington Av-59th St 456NQR, 149th St-Grand Concourse 245, and 125th St 456.
