Nevertheless bidding has begun to wire all 277 subway stations in New York City. The contract for now only includes wiring the platforms but does take into account discussions on how to later expand the networks into the tunnels.
Cingular Wireless; Verizon Wireless; T-Mobile, a unit of Deutsche Telekom and Sprint Nextel teamed up to submit one of the bids, according to Cingular spokesman Clay Owen. Cingular will take the lead on the project if awarded the bid, Owen said.
I am glad Sprint was mentioned, as I am seriously considering their services (for business reasons, as well as personal). Perhaps when I visit New York in the future, this entire network will be setup already.
