Cell phone service at the CH Metro (in 2012) coming soon

Well, here's something to look forward to: Verizon, Spring, T-Mobile and Nextel are installing cell phone equipment at the 20 busiest Metro stations, including Columbia Heights. However, it won't be ready until 2012. Cool, eventually.

As a commenter notes, in-station service should be ready by the Fall, while service in between stations should be ready by 2012.


  1. The service went live at L'Enfant Plaza last night. I was so shocked to have made a call on an iPhone underground that I sent Metro a thank-you email right there in the station. According to the article you referenced all 20 stations should be live by October. It's the track between them that won't be done until 2012.
