OEC Outreach Clips: FCC commissioner pushes Metro on Wi-Fi, Source The Hill – DC

A member of the Federal Communications Commission says he is baffled by the decision from leaders of Washington, D.C.’s Metro system to halt a pilot program for Wi-Fi service in train stations. Metro officials have said that an ongoing pilot program bringing Wi-Fi service to six downtown stations will stop after 45 days so they can examine the service. Republican FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly questioned why the Washington Metro Area Transit Authority couldn’t keep the service operational while it evaluated the success of the pilot.
