Amtrak Offer Free WiFi On Boston-DC Route
Amtrak's Acela Express trains will now have free Wi-Fi for everyone. Currently, it's only available on the Boston-DC route.
According to Electronista, California should be next in line to get Wi-Fi service.
There was technical challenge involved as Amtrak tried to make sure each car was self-sufficient with its own connection as reliability becomes an issue. Furthermore, sometimes, cars get switched around.
This is fantastic news as a mobile fan for the mobile warriors who commute on these trains. Furthermore, I'm looking for not just trains but municipals with dense populations to hook up Wi-Fi, and eventually white spaces networks to serve its population and businesses.
The future start with one train car at a time.
