Something is coming to the Rocket today!

A joint press conference with the TTC and BIA Canada, the company that won the $25 million contract to enable WiFi on the subway platform stations, will see the two organizations making an “important announcement” at 10:30am this morning. Attending the conference will be Mayor John Tory, TTC Chair Josh Colle, TTC Deputy CEO and Chief Customer Officer Chris Upfold, and Ken Ranger of BAI Canada.

Wi-Fi is currently available at several subway stations, including St. George, Bay, Bloor-Yonge, Wellesley, College, Dundas, Queen, King, Union, St. Andrew, Osgoode, St. Patrick and Museum Station. The goal is to eventually have WiFi at all 65 underground stations by 2017.
