Speedify fixes Amtrak’s flaky AmtrakConnect wi-fi so you can actually get stuff done
Amtrak wifi isn’t just bad, its really bad. Despite long awaited upgrades to the system, Amtrak’s complimentary onboard wifi still struggles to keep up with modern data usage. Passengers eager to relax or get work done on their trip are often plagued by slow speeds and flaky connectivity. For frequent travelers, complaining about the onboard wifi its pretty much a rite of passage.
Just check out what these folks have to say about their experiences with wifi on the train:

Hi @Amtrak it is 2017 and this wifi is slower than my 1990s dialup.

If we could fake putting a man on the moon, couldn't #Amtrak fake having a wifi connection worth a shit?

How does Speedify fix Amtrak WiFi?
Over the past few years, we’ve sent our engineers on countless trips aboard planes, trains, and automobiles to test and diagnose problems with Internet connections while on the road.
With this robust set of knowledge, we built Speedify, our revolutionary channel bonding VPN to seamlessly traverse and optimize the multitude of wired and wireless networks we encounter on a daily basis.
With Speedify running on your mobile device, you can connect to the Amtrak wifi AND your phone’s mobile data connection simultaneously. If both connections are working fine, you’ll benefit from their combined speed and reliability, and if one of them disappears or disconnects Speedify will instantly and seamlessly shift your web traffic to the other without missing a step (or skipping a beat).
Additionally, Speedify utilizes a variety of techniques to fix lost and corrupted packets (a common occurrence on slow and overloaded public networks) before they have a chance to slow down your Internet experience.
Improving security on Amtrak wifi without sacrificing speed
Speedify is more than just a way to boost the performance of flaky wifi networks, it is also the best mobile VPN available. Speedify uses the latest encryption standards to deliver over twice the performance of conventional VPNs on desktops and mobile devices. Not only can you stream data faster, but all of your personal data is encrypted – a must when joining unsecured public wifi hotspots like the “AmtrakConnect”. When you use Speedify you no longer have to choose between speed and security. You get both every time you connect.
Speedify is available for iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS.
