Wind Mobile to offer cellular service in Toronto’s TTC subway system

Wind Mobile has struck a deal to be the first wireless company to offer its customers cellular service even while they are underground on Toronto’s TTC subway system.
Alek Krstajic, CEO of the Toronto-based wireless firm, announced the initiative alongside Toronto Mayor John Tory at St George subway station.
Service will roll out in phases. At launch, only the St. George, Bay and Bloor stations are equipped, but more will come soon after launch, with service at Spadina and every one of the so-called “downtown U” stations hooked up in time for the Pan Am Games. Service at some stations on the Bloor line including Sherbourne and Bathurst, will follow shortly thereafter.
Officials said all stations are expected to have cellular service by 2017. The next phase of the plan will be to install infrastructure that allows continuous signal coverage in the tunnels between stations, something that isn’t currently equipped.
“This is another step towards expanding our network and enhancing the Canadian wireless landscape,” Krstajic said.
