Subway cell service extends into Court Square


WiFi is available in the Court Square subway station now

If you were commuting from the Court Square subway station on Wednesday morning, you may have seen the above pictured sign when you were entering. Commuters in the subway station now have access to WiFi courtesy of the MTA, and there will be a more formal announcement on Thursday according to The Wall Street Journal:1

The rollout of cellular and Internet access at more of the city’s approximately 300 subterranean subway stations, along with the availability of wireless Internet at the stops, would mark the latest step to bring one of the world’s largest and oldest mass-transit systems further into the digital age. Underground connectivity is but one item on a long list of improvements eyed for the subway, which opened in 1904. […] At the announcement, MTA officials are expected to join representatives from Transit Wireless, the company under contract to install the service, cellular providers and other companies at the Court Square-23rd Street Station in Queens. The station is served by the E, M, 7 and G lines.
