Metro: Wi-Fi Rollout at Underground Stations Nearly Done

Contributed by BreAnna Bell

Metro says its rollout of free public Wi-Fi at its underground stations is nearly done.

Metro announced they would provide free wifi at all metro stations by mid 2018 last December, once it was offered at 30 stations.

Underground stations account for nearly half of the 91 stations in the Metro system. The agency began rolling out free Wi-Fi in August 2016 as part of a pilot project.

Metro also announced that cellphone service has been expanded on some of its lines. About a third of Metro’s 50 miles of tunnels now have cell service. The agency is federally required to have cellphone service across its entire system, giving riders access to 911 at all times.
