Added Telecommunications Business Opportunities
The MBTA operates a comprehensive telecommunications program serving cell, fiber and other telecommunications utilities. The telecommunications program operates throughout the MBTA's entire holdings encompassing 178 municipalities in Eastern Massachusetts, including the Boston Metropolitan Area, and over 400 miles of rights of way. Together with WIFI Sponsorship rights, the MBTA is offering expanded telecommunications opportunities. The WIFI Sponsor will have the opportunity to use these facilities for the development and expansion of telecommunications beyond MBTA Commuter Rail WIFI Service. The MBTA telecommunications program makes available rail rights of way including subsurface vacant duct work and air rights. Toward that end, the MBTA is encouraging proposals that offer expanded use of MBTA rights of way for a range of telecommunications infrastructure in addition to the WIFI infrastructure. The WIFI Sponsorship Program provides the opportunity for the WIFI provider to build and/or augment a wireless infrastructure system, including new cell towers on MBTA property throughout the commuter rail and ferry system.
