The addition of Joliette to the list of Montreal STM metro stations with cell service leaves just 14 without service.\nThe STM plans to have a fully connected network by the end of 2020.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nCity residents are unlikely to admit it, but the Montreal STM metro network is pretty fantastic.\nAlthough we constantly complain about certain things throughout our transit system, perks like an entirely underground train network, an integrated bus and metro fare system, and high-capacity trains, make the STM one of the most reliable networks on the continent.\nThe slow rollout of cell and internet service in metro stations is also making that busy commute home from work a little more enjoyable.\nToday, the STM announced the latest addition to this service. Joliette metro station on the green line is now connected. You will now be able to use your phone at yet another stop in our city.\nAs most of you may already know, a lot of stops are already able to receive cell service. Passengers can already get reception on every stop on the orange, blue, and yellow lines. As of today, service is only available between Joliette and Lionel-Groulx stations on the green line.\nThat leaves just the following green line stations without cell service for the time being:\nAngrignon\nMonk\nJolicoeur\nVerdun\nDe l'Église\nLaSalle\nCharlevoix\nPie-IX\nViau\nAssomption\nCadillac\nLangelier\nRadisson\nHonoré-Beaugrand\n[Mobile Network] 🚇📱✅📶 Travel while connected to @stm_Verte! Joliette métro station is now wired to the 3G and 4G LTE mobile network. By 2020, the 71 km and 68 métro stations should be fully connected.Info on the mobile network ⏩ https://t.co/Z1r9G9xYZ0 pic.twitter.com/WRFyNwXS0s— STM (@stminfo) August 12, 2019\nCell service allows people waiting for a train to browse the web, listen to live music, watch videos, check social media and receive calls and text messages.\nView this post on Instagram 그 개자식🖤🌫💀 A post shared by Jalya D (@satya.jalya2) on Jul 24, 2019 at 9:52pm PDT\nIt will also have those taking the metro feeling safer, knowing that they can call someone for help if anything were to happen.\nThis project was launched in 2014 by Bell, Rogers, TELUS and Videotron telecommunications and scheduled for completion in 2020.\nI know a lot of people are wondering if Wi-Fi will ever be available on the metro and as of now there is no plan to offer that service.\nView this post on Instagram #stminfo A post shared by Karelle Goguen-Bancel (@karou_gb) on Feb 20, 2019 at 1:44pm PST\nHopefully one day we will be able to connect to a metro Wi-Fi and browse the internet without having to worry about our data plan. Until then, we will be grateful for getting reception at yet another station.\nIf the Joliette stop is on your route home, you should be happy about this news. Hit us up and let us know if the service is working!
