Can You Hear Me Now? Verizon Is Bringing Calls Underground
NYC Verizon customers rejoice!
You can now make and receive calls, texts and access the Internet at 35 subway stations throughout the city. Verizon announced on Tuesday that it will bring its voice, 3G and 4G LTE data services underground to various New York City subway stations.
Verizon Wireless says it has invested more than $4.5 billion across the New York City region since 2000.
The news is not only important for convenience, but also for security. When Verizon customers dial 911, the dispatcher will automatically know if that call is coming from underground and be able to detect the exact platform from which the call was made.
The stations are largely on the west side of Manhattan, from 23rd Street to 96th Street, including the Times Square, Herald Square, Rockefeller Center, Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle stations.
