San Francisco Subway Tests Wi-Fi - Yahoo! News

Anything that gets people out of cars and into mass transit is a good thing...

A startup says it can give subway riders wireless Internet access that's faster than most home broadband in the U.S.

Tests at stations and on a special stretch of track in the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system around San Francisco showed that Wi-Fi Rail's patent-pending technology delivered more than 15M bps (bits per second) of wireless throughput to riders and people waiting for trains, the company said. Wi-Fi Rail hopes to roll out such networks on rail systems around the world and charge commuters for access.
