NYC Subways Get Cell Service

Four New York City subway stations on the west side of Manhattan will have cell service on their platforms beginning Tuesday morning, available to AT&T and T-Mobile customers. The stations include 23rd Street and Eighth Avenue, and three others along West 14th Street—at Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth avenues.

This pilot program has been years in the making, with city transit officials hoping to have the entire system wired by 2016. There’s been no word on an end date for the program, or if subscribers to other mobile networks will have service.
