It seems that Transit Wireless will be getting the go ahead to provide wireless coverage in NYC subway stations in the next few weeks. Sadly they have up to 4 years to complete the job but they are already working on expansion. It seems that even though the MTA shot down the idea of coverage on trains they will be building the current system in a way that it will be expandable if they change their mind in the future. It seems that even the MTA realizes that cellphone coverage in subway trains is inevitable even though it will be disturbing the “serenity” of the subway. The funny part is that most of the people complaining about cellphones bringing noise seem to not have been on a NYC subway in years. I have to use Shure sound isolating headphones just to keep out the circus that is the NYC subway. I had one guy sitting in my train yesterday blasting some new rap song out of his Nextel. I can only imagine how “fun” it would be to hear that trademark Nextel walkytalky beep every day on the way to work.
