Mexico City residents and visitors can now enjoy the AT&T 4G LTE network and free Wi-Fi on the Metro’s Line 3
The Mexico City Metro Service’s Line 3 now has free Wi-Fi and access to the AT&T in Mexico 4G LTE network. Line 3 joins lines 7 and 1 as the 3rd connected line in the city’s metro.

The connectivity project will benefit more than 719,000 daily users and about 183 million people annually who cross the city from Indios Verdes to Universidad station. On average, Line 3 has a depth of 4.5 meters and is made up of 21 stations, which include Hidalgo, Medical Center and Coyoacán.
