Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has announced that the city has reached a deal with Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile to bring 4G LTE from all four carriers to the Chicago Transit Authority's subway system. The network, which will replace the decade-old system currently in Chicago's subways, will provide continuous coverage for 22 miles.
Mayor Emanuel expressed his hope that this upgrade will help make Chicago a more competitive city in the official announcement:
The network upgrade began in early January, and is expected to be complete by the end of 2015.
