After announcing free WiFi across the entire TTC network last year, you can now also use your phone at select station.
There is one catch. It’s only available to Freedom Mobile (formerly WIND) customers.
Freedom Mobile began rolling out 3G and LTE networks in TTC stations earlier this year. And as of March 20, they are available at 35 stations across the city.
You can text, call, and use your own data while underground. Finally.
As per Freedom Mobile, you can use your phone on “platforms, mezzanines and toll booths at stations with network coverage.”
3G and LTE networks are available at the following stations:
Union, King, Queen, Dundas, College, Wellesley, Bloor/Yonge, Sherbourne, Castle Frank, St. Andrew, Osgoode, St. Patrick, Queen’s Park, Museum, St. George, Bay, Spadina, Dupont, Bathurst, Christie, Ossington, Dufferin, Lansdowne, Dundas West, and Keele
3G network is available at the following stations:
Broadview, Chester, Pape, Donlands, Greenwood, Coxwell, Woodbine, Main, High Park, Runnymede, Jane, Old Mill, Royal York, St. Clair West
As awesome as this is, be ready to hear a lot more phone chatter underground now.
