Recently, T-Mobile (News - Alert) USA, Inc. helped the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to power wireless connectivity services to the Blue and Green Lines throughout Boston, Mass.
By offering new wireless connectivity services to T-Mobile customers on the Blue Line between Maverick and Bowdoin and on the Green Line from North Station to Kenmore, T-Mobile has nearly doubled its underground service to 13 miles of coverage and 26 underground stops on The T station platforms and coaches.
“Our customers want to stay connected wherever they go -- and now their conversations, texts and Web use doesn't have to end when they travel underground in Boston,” said John Diefenbach, vice president and general manager, New England region, T-Mobile USA, in a statement.
“With our latest investment in our Boston network, we are continuing to bring more value to our 1 million local customers,” Diefenbach added.
T-Mobile USA, Inc. is the U.S. wireless operation of Deutsche Telekom (News - Alert) AG.
David E. Weisman, president and CEO, InSite Wireless said that the company is excited to continue to partner with the MBTA and T-Mobile to expand wireless connectivity coverage in the subway for Boston commuters.
“By working with the MBTA and T-Mobile, we are able to continue to make Boston a technological hub and provide state-of-the-art connectivity to residents and visitors alike,” Weisman commented.
InSite Wireless specializes in the design, installation, operation, and management of shared wireless infrastructure solutions that enhance the quality and capacity of wireless voice and data services for complex indoor and outdoor environments.
