Waiting for a subway? Soon you will be able to connect to the Internet wirelessly on the subway platform using your laptop, tablet computer, or smartphone.

The service will be provided by Boingo Wirelss and Transit Wireless and will be rolled out over the next five years to subway stations in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens.

Over 1.6 billion riders use New York City subways in the course of a year and they will be able to connect to the network using Boingo or a roaming partner such as Skype, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon.

The New York City Subway operates 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.  It is the most-used rapid transit rail system in the U.S. and the seventh busiest in the world, after Tokyo, Moscow, Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, and Guangzhou.
