AT&T* in Mexico and the Mexico City Metro announced the connectivity of Line 2 with 4G LTE and free Wi-Fi in all its stations. Line 2 is the 4th connected line by the company as part of the Mexico City Metro connectivity project to help reduce the digital gap in the country.
On average, this line is 6 meters deep. It runs from Cuatro Caminos to Tasqueña, and it has 24 stations; 14 of them are underground and 10 above ground. In addition, this line has some emblematic stations that go through Mexico City’s Historical Downtown, such as Hidalgo, Bellas Artes and Zócalo.
AT&T’s network will provide connectivity to more than 800,000 daily users of this route and to about 206 million people in an entire year. In total, the deployment of AT&T’s network in Lines 1, 2, 3 and 7 will benefit more than 2.6 million people daily. This project contemplates deploying 4G LTE network in all 12 Mexico City Metro lines and free Wi-Fi in 11 of them.
More than 2,000 technicians and engineers worked to install the 4G LTE network and free Wi-Fi in all 24 stations and 38 trains. The deployment required more than 13,000 man hours.
