Cell Service coming to Link tunnels

Starting August 23, cell phone service begins rolling out in Link tunnels. The first section to open will be the new U-Link tunnels between Westlake Station and the University of Washington, including Capitol Hill Station and University of Washington Station (Westlake Station will open along with the rest of the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel). Initially T-Mobile will be the first service provider, followed by Verizon and then AT&T. Later this year tunnel service between International District/Chinatown Station and Westlake Station will open up. Next year service will come to the Beacon Hill tunnel.
