Technological Civilization is finally arrived to New York or at least to a part of it!
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced on April, 25 that 30 additional subway stations now have wireless voice and data communication capability allowing New York City subway riders to make and receive cell phone calls, send and receive texts and e-mail and access Wi-Fi underground.
If you want you can read the full announcement on Governor’s website.
From now on you’ll be more reachable, but also safer (in case of emergency you could call 911 or your friends and family).
These are the first 36 subway stations now connected, but “Transit Wireless expects to provide service to the remaining 241 underground stations within four years and has already begun design work on the next 40 stations in midtown and Queens”.
