It is the end of an era. Last October the MTA announced a plan to bring AT&T and T-Mobile customers platform cell service and now the MTA has confirmed that, after four years of anticipation, the next level of subway douchery is almost upon us. Brace yourselves people, the cell service start Tuesday.

The MTA (which is really into technology this month) is staying mum on the details but here’s what we know: Starting Tuesday AT&T and T-Mobile subscribers riding along the 14th Street corridor should be able to use their phones on the A, C, E, F, L, M, No. 1, 2 and 3 platforms. There is also expected to be service on the C and E platforms at 23rd Street. It it not clear yet if service will also work between stations, but we’re sure we’ll all find out soon enough. Perhaps this is part of what all that recent construction on the L has been about? Gothamist
