The good news is that technical work continues on installing equipment necessary to provide cell service throughout Metro’s subway tunnels.
The not-as-good news: the schedule has slipped due to ongoing negotiations between Metro’s contractor, InSite Wireless, and wireless carriers. InSite Wireless still must also sign a deal with a firm to supply WiFi in underground stations.
Separately, Metro is also working on a deal that in the near future could supply limited free WiFi and paid WiFi throughout much of Union Station. Stay tuned — more info on that effort hopefully soon.
