Boston to Get Wi-Fi Access in Subways

Nothing like a little Wi-Fi on the ‘ol subway, huh? Well, if you live in Boston, this sort of ‘underground wireless access‘ will be an option for you. Who knows, this could even prove to be an insensitive to make the move to taking the subway once in awhile versus driving to work.

By this fall, Boston commuters will be able to use their laptops and PDAs with wireless capability in the city’s subways. Wireless access will be available in the Park Street, Downtown Crossing, Government Center and State Street stations, as well as connecting tunnels, thanks to a 15-year agreement with InSite Wireless.

The city hopes to expand the Wi-Fi service to the entire subway system over the next few years. T-Mobile, meanwhile, already provides wireless access at the stations for its customers.
