West 14th street? That's it after 5 years? What a joke!

Cue the Lawsuits

How dare the NYC Subway provide free wi-fi, it's taking money from the mega corporations who could be selling this at an outrageous price as a "premium product".

Really?

There are over 400 subway stations in New York and they are wiring six?

its not needed in this station as there is cell service in the station and hardly any benches to sit.

Wait, you actually expect it to work?!?!?! Now it would be under constant repair for several centuries, like the rest or NYC subway. Don't expect it to get fixed during your lifetime.

wifi in nyc

I agree with all comments . . you wire only six? It blows my mind that there are no subway stations with wifi these day.

Re: What a joke

Forget WiFi, I'd love to be able to get a basic cell phone signal down there. The "1" line is terrible for that.

I've never seen a cell signal underground. I ride the 2 and 5 trains all the time. Besides, how useful is a cell when you are nuts to butts in a noisy subway anyway?

About as useful as wifi really, most people will be using their cellphones on either.
