BAI Canada brings TCONNECT Wi-Fi to seven more TTC stations, with a commitment to bring 24 more online by the close of 2016.
TORONTO, CANADA, 11th March 2016 – BAI Canada and the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) are pleased to announce the expansion of Wi-Fi service to seven additional stations: Dupont on Line 1 Yonge-University, and Keele, Old Mill, High Park, Lansdowne, Ossington and Main Street stations on Line 2 Bloor-Danforth.
BAI Canada has committed to a full rollout of Wi-Fi and cellular infrastructure across the subway system, and plans to bring 24 additional stations online by the end of 2016 – almost doubling the size of the current rollout. The remaining TTC stations will be enabled on the network by mid-2017. A current list of all Wi-Fi enabled stations is available at TCONNECT.ca.
“Wi-Fi coverage continues to be rolled out throughout the subway system with the addition of seven new stations, allowing even more customers to have access to wireless internet service while in the TTC system,” said TTC Chair Josh Colle. “The expansion of free Wi-Fi and cellular service demonstrates the TTC’s commitment to modernization of the system and improving the customer experience.”
Expanded Cellular Rollout
BAI Canada and WIND Mobile are also increasing the number of stations with cellular connectivity in the TTC subway system. WIND Mobile’s customers will soon have cellular service across five additional stations – Bathurst, Christie, Dupont, Sherbourne and Castle Frank. Since July 2015, WIND Mobile’s customers have had cellular service available in the downtown lower loop, and this brings additional connectivity to the Bloor-Danforth line.
BAI Canada’s cellular infrastructure is built and ready to support all wireless carriers in Toronto.
“The network expansion means we’re keeping more Torontonians connected underground as they make their way across the city’s busiest subway stations,” said Ken Ranger, CEO, BAI Canada. “Riders are going to see the network expansion in a big way this year, and we look forward to finding other ways to provide more connectivity, like extending our cellular offerings and adding new cellular carriers.”
