How's your cell service on Metro?

By Washington Post Editors

Did you get a new iPhone for Christmas? Are you trying out a Droid Incredible you landed for the holiday? Tell us about your experiences on our cellphone service map.

A team of companies -- AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon -- are laying fiber-optic cable and installing other equipment to meet an Oct. 2012 deadline set by Congress for establishing service throughout the underground rail system.

Metro agreed in 2008 to expand service as part of a funding deal with Congress. Previously, a long-standing contract with Verizon had limited underground service to its customers and Sprint users (who had to pay roaming charges).

Help us track how they're doing.
