Fast Trains, Meet Faster Wi-Fi
Need a reason to upgrade your travel experience? Take an Acela Express trip, login to AmtrakConnect, and experience our FREE next-generation Wi-Fi. It brings you speeds up to 6x faster than our previous Wi-Fi service.
The new service, available on all 20 Acela Express trains, will provide you with a faster, more satisfying, and stable connection throughout your journey.
And there’s even more to look forward to—over the next two years, Amtrak will be working to bring next generation Wi-Fi service to all Northeast Regional trains, keeping you connected from Washington, D.C. to Boston.
The rollout of this new technology represents the first phase of our multi-year program aimed at bringing you the best in onboard Wi-Fi services. In parallel, Amtrak is continuing construction of our own private trackside wireless network, which could ultimately stretch from Washington, D.C. to Boston and will reduce reliance on congested cellular networks. This innovative solution, expected to take 2-4 years to complete, will allow us to deliver you with best-in-class onboard Wi-Fi in terms of capacity, performance, and operational reliability.
We’re proud that 28 million passengers (more than 90%!) have access to free wireless service on our trains nationwide. Before planning your travel, be sure to check out our complete list of all Wi-Fi enabled trains.
