Obviously I do not live in new york nor have been there. My only experience with subways are in D.C. but I figured this would have already been done or in the works. Granted everything is the money game but this seems alittle late but I guess better than never.
My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630
http://www.nycsubwaywireless.com/ has a list of which stations have it and the site is mobile friendly. So far I have only gotten texts at a few stations below ground and my phone rang at another but since I was on a train i didn't bother to answer because once the train leaves the station i assume click disconnect..
Been waiting years for this. I've missed so many calls from work by being stuck down there waiting for the trains with no signal.
(Disclaimer this is not sarcasm in any way) Im glad to know that yourself and millions of other riders pain and suffering are finally over. I too live where there are no subways and have visited new york once and maybe used the subway once but for those that live there they can get more done on the subway instead of wasting there time those that live off their cell phones can make use of those long or short rides. Its awesome to see this coming to light
If I had to deal with the subways on a daily basis, I would be happy about this too. It's kind of funny when you think about how our ~connectivity~ has become so necessary to our generation. (and how older people resisted it)
I was on a trip to PA with my wife last weekend (both of her parents passed away and we were collecting family heirlooms) and we had to find a U-Haul dealer up there. My Garmin got us lost ~twice~ on the way, for the first time ever since I bought it. I felt betrayed by the the little electronic bugger. (real grown up reaction, huh?)
I pulled out my iPad and used Google maps to find the place and it was spot-on. This is the first time using Google maps and I'm glad that I have it for a backup now.
So yeah,.....connectivity rules.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
