New Yorkers Loved Wi-Fi in the Subway in 2013

In 2013, checking email, getting directions, streaming music, watching videos and more were all possible in 36 underground NY Subway stations thanks to our Wi-Fi network.

Throughout the year, the Wi-Fi network served about 2.6 million connections, processed more than 60 terabytes (TB) of data – more information than the Hubble Space telescope has collected in two decades – with the average user spending nine minutes on the network. Smartphones like the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S® 4 were the most popular devices to connect to the Wi-Fi network and were responsible for 76 percent of the data usage.

Here’s an infographic with even more data on how New Yorkers and visitors used the Wi-Fi.
