Governor Cuomo announced yesterday thirty new Subway Stations with data and voice cellular service. This brings the total number of stations with connectivity up to 36, with the goal of outfitting all stations by 2016. Free Wi-Fi is available on any device by joining the network “FreeWifibyHTCONE” (because the Wi-Fi service is currently being sponsored by HTC One). AT&T and T-Mobile customers have voice & data connections in these subway stops now while Verizon and Sprint announced they will also support the project going going forward. I’m pretty thrilled to be able to use my iPhone, iPad, or Mac to let my friends know I’m stuck waiting for the train via Messages and the free Wi-Fi.
