American telecom service provider Verizon Wireless’ voice and 3G and 4G LTE data services are now available in New York City subway stations.
The stations cover the west side of Manhattan from 23rd St. to 96thSt, including Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle, said Verizon Wireless in a statement.
Since 2000, Verizon Wireless invested more than $4.5 billion into our wireless network across the New York Metropolitan Region.
The addition of Verizon Wireless service to the Transit Wireless network allows millions more New Yorkers and visitors to stay in touch with friends and family while in subway stations and on platforms, but also provides the ability to dial 911 in an emergency.
“The build-out of the Transit Wireless network continues to progress on schedule, as we add additional carriers like Verizon Wireless and begin work on Phase Two of the project to bring service to 40 additional stations, including Grand Central Station in Manhattan, as well as all underground stations throughout Queens,” said William A. Bayne Jr., CEO of Transit Wireless.
