That time Verizon phones started working underground
Verizon consumers were pleasantly surprised in late October when their Twitter scanning/Facebook stalking/Pandora listening was uninterrupted when their T train went underground.
Per Michael Murphy, a spokesman for Verizon: “I wouldn’t be surprised if MBTA customers started recognizing new coverage in places they previously had not.”
There’s been no formal announcement, but the cell phone network acknowleged it’s expanding its Blue, Orange, Green and Red line coverage. It forged an agreement with the MBTA and InSite Wireless Group about the coverage expansion in July.
