Now that cell phone service has arrived on part of the subway system, the program is poised to expand.
All underground stations are expected to be wired by 2016, but trains are not expected to have service between stations.
AT&T and T-Mobile signed 10-year contracts to provide cell and Wi-Fi service through a network being built by Transit Wireless.
New cell towers are now banned within 1,500 feet of a home, a house of worship, a daycare center or a school in the Town of Hempstead.
