NEW YORK – The Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Transit Wireless have completed a major expansion of wireless Internet service in New York subway stations, extending underground connectivity to 11 new Manhattan stations and 29 more in Queens, and connecting a total 47 million riders monthly. The completion of Phases I and II is part of seven phases to wire all 277 underground stations by 2017, and work has begun to bring another 39 stations online by spring 2015.

Phase II of the network build-out covers 29 underground stations in Queens and 11 in Manhattan, including hubs such as the Jackson Heights/Roosevelt Avenue Station, Jamaica Center Station, Court Square Station, 42 Street Bryant Park Station, 34 Street Herald Square Station and Grand Central 42 Street Station. The first 36 Midtown Manhattan underground stations were connected 18 months ago.

Phase III of the project will include the Flushing Main Street Station in Queens, and stations in Lower Manhattan, West Harlem and Washington Heights. Major stations in Phase III include the Fulton Street Station, 125 Street Station and the new 34 Street 7 Station when it opens next year.
