    Coverage in Grand Central Station - NYC

    Has anybody been to Grand Central Station in NYC recently, and can they comment on how the Verizon network is? And not only how it is inside the main station, but is there any service while the train is inside the Park Ave tunnels between the terminal and E 97th St?

    Will be heading that way soon and just curious about what to expect, especially inside the Park Ave. tunnel. Thanks in advance.

    Flawless. Verizon has a DAS at Grand Central. You'll have service most of the way between the tunnel at 96th and Grand Central. AT&T also has comparable service.

    There is a neutral host DAS that covers the entire station and including, as dcgore said, the tunnels all the way out to the portals.

    Thanks!

    Just out of curiosity, how well is Penn Station covered? The main ticket/waiting area, downstairs at trackside, the tunnels, etc?

    You will want VZW in Penn Station. Only Verizon has service in the tunnel between NJ & NY. Where people get on/off the trains can be iffy for all carriers. AT&T’s DAS there doesn’t aggregate, data is unreliable.
