CTA subways to upgrade to 4G service in $32.5 million deal
Blue and Red Line riders, better wireless service is soon coming to the subways.
The CTA made a $32.5 million deal with four wireless providers, T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. The deal will bring 4G service to Blue and Red Line tunnels and subways.
The service will be phased in station by station, to make Chicago the city with the largest U.S. public transportation system with 4G coverage in all of its subways.
The work should be done by the end of the year.
