The problem is that you need to connect to the internet while on the train. You need to work. You need to send emails. You need to check Facebook just to keep you from going crazy from being on the train.
The good news is that there is a cure for your Amtrak internet problems, and it’s easier than you think.
Bad Internet Connections Are Not All About Amtrak
Amtrak wifi is bad. There’s no sugar coating it. But, your phone or tablet is also part of the problem. By default, your IOS and Android can only use one internet connection at a time. If you are connected to wifi, everything is going through the wifi, no matter how spotty the signal or how slow the connection.
