According to the NYC Patch


"NEW YORK, NY — The MTA is dialing in, a full two years ahead of schedule. Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday that cell phone service and Wi-Fi will be available across nearly all underground stations by Monday in response to his directive at the beginning of 2016 to accelerate the project.

“By bringing Wi-Fi and cell service underground ahead of schedule, we are reimagining our subway stations to meet the needs of the next generation,” Cuomo said in a press release. “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.""

People are starting to take notice!
