Free WiFi is now up and running in Bay TTC station

After half a year of pumping free (albeit ad-supported) WiFi throughout Yonge and St. George subway stations, the TTC is finally beginning its rollout of wider wireless service, bridging the gap between the two stations. The TConnect network tweeted earlier this week that WiFi was up and running at Bay station, and riders report that they've been able to access the network as early as Monday.

A nice bonus: TConnect confirms that you can use the WiFi while traveling between the three stations, without having to re-connect or watching another ad - just hit refresh when you pull into the next station. (You still won't have a signal while the train's in the tunnel between stations, unfortunately.)

There's been no official announcement from the TTC yet, but head of communications Brad Ross confirmed via Twitter that they're doing some testing before an official unveiling. In the meantime, signs went up at College station earlier this month, saying WiFi infrastructure is being added to the station, and TConnect has teased at more stations coming soon. It's all happening.
