Cell Phone, Wireless Service Coming To The Subway

NEW YORK (CBS 2) -- Morning commuters could soon be getting connected in the subway.

AT&T and T-Mobile signed 10-year contracts to provide cell and Wi-Fi service through a network being built by Transit Wireless.

Other carriers are still negotiating deals.

Six Manhattan subway stations were due to be wired for cell phone service by the end of next year.

All underground stations were expected to be wired by 2016, but trains were not expected to have service between stations.
