Cell phone service will soon be available to subway riders in Queens.

The MTA says 40 stations in Queens will be the next to be wired for cell phone service and wi-fi.

Thirty stations in Manhattan will see the new services, as well.

The upgrades are slated for next year as part of a seven-year plan to outfit the entire subway system.

The only stops currently wired for cell and wi-fi service are in Manhattan at stations at 14th Street and the C and E stations at 23rd Street on Eighth Avenue.
