Re: Is VZ getting on board with DAS or Wi-Fi?
BTW, starting to see the Transit Wireless WiFi APs signals live on the F line at Delancey Street & 2 Ave and above. Possibly a clue as to where we can next expect to see the service?

Re: Is VZ getting on board with DAS or Wi-Fi?
Transit Wireless runs the WiFi itself. The carriers are hosted on the DAS it has and is installing.

Is VZ getting on board with DAS or Wi-Fi?
The title seems to suggest that the VZ is getting on board with NYC Wi-Fi; but the post suggests VZ will only be integrating with DAS. How is Wi-Fi coming in the picture here? Is Verizon (and for that matter other carriers mentioned in the post) providing any integrating of their services with Wi-Fi hotspots in these subway stations such as Carrier Wi-Fi, Voice over Wi-Fi?

Re: What about the H-word people?
With politics ever present, it would be interesting to see how contracts are let, and how much lobbying and other money in involved in the final government approvals. Nonetheless, subway riders will eventually have a great service, although at what cost might be interesting to look at.

Re: What about the H-word people?/Verizon
Note that as far as I know, verizon has only signed up for the next 2 phases, after dragging its feet on Phase 3. So that doesn't take it into Brooklyn anyway.

I'll have to take a closer look at the way this is financed but I'm not sure the mayor has sway over Verizon is supported in the project. The way Transit Wireless is set up is as a carrier netural host DAS. So it seems to be more about whether VZ wants to support it rather than vice versa!

Re: What about the H-word people?
@MordyK No, I just visited Sagamore Hill. Though tickets to the house tour were sold out (people seem sold on seeing it in its recently renovated glory http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/10/arts/design/theodore-roosevelts-sagamore-hill-home-cries-bully.html) , the mueum was open.

@MordyK Indeed, another thing that Teddy Roosevelt battled against, but that crops up repeatedly.

@SteveQ big companies don't really get penalized the way a small one would. Its called "government affairs", otherwise known as sanctioned bribery.

Re: What about the H-word people?
@SteveQ I'd guess there was some bidding before the project that made them arrive at their particular choice.
