The entire Phase Two build-out is expected to be completed by this summer

New Yorkers will see AT&T’s wireless voice and data service expanded to more New York City subway stations. 

AT&T announced that it has expanded its contract with Transit Wireless, which will place AT&T’s wireless voice and data service on Transit Wireless’ network in 242 additional underground New York City subway stations. 

As of right now, AT&T's service is available in six stations from the Initial Build in Chelsea as well as 30 stations in mid-town Manhattan from Phase 1 of the project.

AT&T wants to bring 3G and 4G LTE service to Phase 2 of the project, which is made up of 40 stations. This includes 11 stations in mid-town Manhattan (including Grand Central Terminal, 34th St. Herald Square and Bryant Park) and all 29 underground stations in the borough of Queens.

AT&T is currently installing equipment in Transit Wireless’ secure Base Station Hotel facilities to make Phase 2 happen. The entire Phase Two build-out is expected to be completed by this summer.

“New Yorkers want to be connected to the things that matter to them most. That’s why AT&T was one of the first providers to offer our customers access to wireless connectivity in the New York subway system,” said Thomas DeVito, vice president and general manager at AT&T Mobility. “This network extension will allow AT&T to continue to deliver a best in class voice and 4G LTE data experience for our customers underground beyond the 36 stations where it is available today.”
