T-Mobile’s HotSpot Wi-Fi service is now available at five Amtrak stations in the Northeast Corridor. Sitting in a train station may not be as posh a visiting a coffee house or book store but at least now commuters can enjoy the Internet while waiting for a connecting ride. The five stations include Washington Union Station, Baltimore Penn Station, Wilmington Station, Philadelphia 30th Street Station and New York Penn Station. A variety of Wi-Fi service plans are available from one day passes going up to unlimited annual passes. Just don’t miss the connecting train while you spend quality time with your computer.
“Reliable and secure wireless Internet access is one of the amenities most frequently requested by our customers,” said Matt Hardison, chief, Sales Distribution and Customer Service at Amtrak. “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.”
“The continued success of T-Mobile HotSpot service can be attributed to being in the places where people want to connect with family, friends and associates; and also ensuring the service is reliable and of high quality,” said Joe Sims, vice president and general manager, Broadband Products and Services, T-Mobile USA. “We’re excited about our partnership with Amtrak to provide customers in the Northeast with another convenient and effective way to stay connected.”
