Would be cool to access the web and text, but hearing people's conversations on the phone will be w.0

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has been looking for a contractor to perform the service for a number of years, and has finally reached an agreement with a company called Transit Wireless which would see Transit sell access to major carriers.

 

 

Although many of the city’s perpetually connected residents will welcome the opportunity to keep their BlackBerrys and iPads online through the commute, a fair number are likely to resent the intrusion of loud cellphone conversations into what is one of the last refuges from half of other people’s conversations.

I read a blog post from someone worried that this would open up the subways to terrorists using cellphones to blow shit up.

 

Now that would be pretty w.0
