More Cell Phone Service Coming To Metro

On the Phone, originally uploaded by THEfunkyman.

Given the FQoTD about eating on the metro this seemed like an interesting follow up question. A reader sent an article from the Washington Business Journal:

“Cell phones with AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint service plans will start to work in 20 stations in D.C., Maryland and Virginia (in October).

Stations were picked based on the highest volume of passengers and include the Metro Center, Bethesda, Union Station and Crystal City stations.

By 2010, cell phone service will penetrate all 47 stations but riders passing through the underground tunnels will have to wait until 2012 to make and receive calls.”

So, will you be happy to have this option on the metro or do you think it will be terribly annoying?
