Cell Phone Service in NYC Subways

September 27th, 2011

Beginning today, six subway stations in Manhattan will have AT&T and TMobile cell phone service.  All six stations are in Chelsea; however, Transit Wireless, the company setting up the services, plans on completing 271 more stations in the next 5 years.  Verizon and Sprint subscribers won’t get reception for now and the reception only exists on the platforms, not too far into the tunnels.
