New York City subway launches Verizon Wireless 3G, 4G LTE service

updated 05:48 pm EST, Tue January 28, 2014

New data service also includes enhanced 911 service including location

Transit Wireless today announced that Verizon Wireless' voice and 3G and 4G-LTE data services are now available in New York City subway stations. The stations cover the west side of Manhattan from 23rd Street to 96th Street, including Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle. Notably absent from the first round of build-outs are both Penn Station and Grand Central Station.

The addition of Verizon Wireless service to the Transit Wireless network also provides the ability to dial 911 in an emergency. A critical security improvement, E911 allows dispatchers to know when a call is being placed from an underground platform and direct emergency personnel to the approximate location where the call was made.

A detailed breakdown of service locations can be found at the project's mobile-friendly website.
