Telus-owned flanker brand Public Mobile has confirmed it now offers mobile coverage on ‘select areas” of the TTC’s subway system, allowing subscribers to talk, text and browse while on the go.

Public Mobile joins its parent company Telus, alongside Rogers, Bell and flanker brands like Fido, Virgin and more, offering subway wireless coverage.

Previously, only Freedom Mobile and later Rogers customers had wireless access to wireless services on the subway system. Bell and Telus initially questioned Rogers’ purchase of the TTC subway’s wireless infrastructure as part of an Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) consultation.
