In 2012, BAI Communications in Canada was tasked to design, build and operate the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC)’s cellular and Wi-Fi network across Toronto’s underground network of subway stations. The TTC handles the third largest ridership in North America, accommodating nearly 85% of local transits made in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

The challenge: Improve rider connectivity

The solution: Uninterrupted fast Wi-Fi and cellular service

The benefit: Wi-Fi for 1.6m commuters and cellular coverage for Freedom customers

“As Mayor, I am committed to modernizing both the services the City offers and the way they are delivered to Toronto residents. I’d like to congratulate WIND [Freedom] Mobile and BAI [Communications] Canada for working with the TTC to put customers first and expanding cellular service underground.” John Tory, Mayor of Toronto {Source: “TTC, BAI Canada & WIND Mobile launch cellular service underground”, TTC website, 17 June 2015}
