Governor Cuomo revealed that by January 9th nearly all subway station in New York will have cell service from AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon.
The cell service will co-exist with the wifi signal that was added to stations in 2016. The only exceptions are stations that are undergoing renovation.
Not everyone is enthusiastic with the addition of the cell service. They were glad that in the subway station people weren’t always looking on their smartphones like on the streets.
