But AT&T users were still offline during that 10 minute stretch between Oakland and San Francisco during this morning's commute.
Despite erroneous media reports that BART was offering wi-fi in the Tube, it is actually up to the carriers to activate the network service for its customers, BART officials said.
"I have been told that AT&T is having problems with its 3G network down there," says BART spokesman Linton Johnson.
AT&T officials got back to us saying the company has a little more "tweaking and testing" before it can get it up and running for its customers.
So it will be a few more days before AT&T users/BART riders can fire up their phones and laptops while traversing under the Bay.
