Three of the big four carriers have already started beaming their cellular signals into the depths of New York City’s subway system as part of the Transit Wireless project. Soon they’ll be joined by Verizon Wireless(s vz)(s vod), which said on Tuesday it will install its base station gear in the 36 stations Transit currently covers. Transit’s ultimate goal is to bring mobile connectivity to all of the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s 277 underground stations by 2016.
