WiFi on Acela trains & in stations

Amtrak says free wireless Internet service is now available aboard Acela Express trains and in some stations in the Northeast. Amtrak announced in January that the service, called AmtrakConnect, was coming.

The rail agency said WIFi is available on all Acela Express trains, in Club Acela lounges and in some stations:

-- Union Station in the District
-- Penn Station in Baltimore
-- Wilimington Station in Delaware
-- Penn Station in New York
-- Providence Station in Rhode Island
-- Route 128 in Westwood, Mass.

On trains, Amtrak blocks access to streaming video and restricts downloads larger than 10 megabytes. The limitations do not apply in stations.

For more information on the service, vist Amtrak's Web site.
