New York Subway Stations to Get Wireless Coverage From Sprint

July 24 (Bloomberg) -- Sprint Corp. said it will offer mobile-phone coverage in all of New York City’s 277 subway stations, seeking to catch up to AT&T Inc. and T-Mobile US Inc.

The third-biggest U.S. wireless carrier will have service in 36 stations in the Midtown and Chelsea neighborhoods by early next year, according to a statement today. The company signed a deal with Transit Wireless LLC for the project, it said.

AT&T and T-Mobile reached deals in 2010 to cover the subway stops. Verizon Wireless, the nation’s largest mobile-phone company, is the only major U.S. carrier that has yet to announce it will do the same. The company said in April it was finalizing an agreement with Transit Wireless.

Closely held Transit Wireless won approval in 2010 to install antennas in the subway stations in a $200 million project.
