Amtrak adds Wi-Fi Internet service to Northeast Corridor stations

Amtrak on Monday began offering high-speed, wireless Internet service, provided by T-Mobile, at five train stations in the Northeast Corridor: Washington Union Station, Baltimore Penn Station, Wilmington (Del.) Station, Philadelphia 30th Street Station and New York Penn Station.

The wireless, or Wi-Fi, Internet service available at the stations is similar to that of other T-Mobile HotSpots, located at Borders and Starbucks.

"Reliable and secure wireless Internet access is one of the amenities most frequently requested by our customers," said Matt Hardison, Amtrak's chief of sales distribution and customer service, in a statement. "By partnering with T-Mobile to provide Wi-Fi at Amtrak stations, we're ensuring that business and leisure travelers alike can connect to the Internet with enhanced security and make better use of their time in our stations along the Northeast Corridor."

Passengers may access the service by purchasing one-day or unlimited annual access passes. For all questions, passengers should call T-Mobile HotSpot Customer Care at (877) 822-7768.
