Verizon’s LTE footprint covers almost the entire country but in cities like New York, where commuters can spend over an hour each day riding the subway, there are still plenty of holes in the carrier’s coverage. Thankfully, Verizon is working to bring its 4G LTE signal underground to cover 35 subway stations. AT&T and T-Mobile offer a similar service, covering 36 stations as of April 2013.

The leading U.S. carrier has been working with Transit Wireless to bring its LTE service to the NYC’s massive subway system. Since 2000, Verizon has invested $4.5 billion into its New York network, according to┬áregional president┬áPatrick Devlin, and that includes the money spent putting its 4G network underground.

The subway service map is still restricted to Manhattan, and covers much of midtown, Times Square and the Upper West Side. Next, Verizon and Transit Wireless plan to expand the LTE network to 40 more stations including Grand Central Station and parts of Queens. For now, you can check out a full list of Verizon’s first 35 stations via the source link below.
