Cellphone Service + The Big Dig

11/08/2007 11:26:00 AM
All I can say is that it's about time. When I had to switch to AT&T, from Verizon (for work) I was bummed out. My verizon phone used to get reception everywhere. AT&T not so much.

One of the biggest issues I had was driving through the Big Dig. Whether going to and from a meeting, or shuttling clients to and from the airport: I couldn't have a phone conversation if I was downtown because I know I'd be cut off.

Now, with the federal clearance, four large wireless companies have told officials with the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority that they will install the equipment in stages, beginning in about two weeks.
The project, which could cost up to $7.6 million, will be paid for by the carriers and be completed within three to six months, the companies said.

These estimates are never accurate, so I'm just hoping by this time next year I'll be able to talk on my phone while driving through the Big Dig.
