(2007-09-21) Subway Cell Phone Wiring

The MTA signed a deal to have Cell Phone service made available in SubWay stations (not in tunnels). The company that won the right to wire the stations, Transit Wireless, will pay New York City Transit a minimum of $46.8 million over 10 years, the agency said. The company will also pay the full cost of building the wireless network in the underground stations, estimated at $150 million to $200 million. Under the agreement, cellphone providers would pay the company a fee to carry their signals on the network. Boy does this sound like it's going to be expensive to callers... Is it going to support all the networks?
