ABOUT TIME: Amtrak is adding

ABOUT TIME: Amtrak is adding Wi-Fi to six Northeastern U.S. train stations, in a move to attract more business travelers. Hopefully eventually they’ll eventually install it on trains as well.

Amtrak has done a reasonable job of embracing laptop users in the past five years–I remember taking numerous Northeast Corridor trains in ’95 and ’96 that only had two 120V outlet per Amfleet car. Now most cars have been retrofitted to one per each row of seats.

Good to seem them getting serious with Wi-Fi as well.
