Straphangers will be able to yak, text, email and tweet in 30 more subway stations by April 2013, according to the company outfitting New York City subway stations with wireless service.

Wireless Transit, the company contracting with the MTA to provide service to 277 stations by the end of 2014, wired its first six stations last September, bringing service to stops along the West Side of Manhattan.

While the company had planned to bring service to 30 additional stations in 2012, Superstorm Sandy pushed the target date back to the end of the first quarter next year.

“We are working hand-in-hand with AT&T, T-Mobile, Boingo and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to minimize any delays to our construction schedule in light of the massive recovery efforts underway in the city,” Wireless Transit CEO William A. Bayne Jr. said in a statement.

The 30 stations coming online will include Times Square, Rockefeller Center and Columbus Circle, according to The New York Times, with service coming to stations from “Grand Central through Queens” by the end of 2013.

    If you have DSL or cable highspeed, you can get a that prveidos a connection to the internet for your wireless computer. If you found a router that supported dial-up, you would be all set but none exists. You can BUY a wireless router that is used to establish a local area network. With this, you can get a so-called USB Printer that can make your Printer accessible as a wireless printer. It would be silly to have a router without also sharing high speed internet. A router also helps to isolate your computer FROM on-line security threats; but USE the wireless security settings. Good luck and Happy Computing!
