How we tested Speedify on Amtrak
New York City to Philadelphia, 2 external network adapters, one laptop
Connection performance on the Amtrak – when used separately
We used the following connections:
- The laptop’s built-in WiFi card, connected to the Amtrak WiFi network;
- A Verizon LTE MiFi, tethered via USB;
- A CLEAR USB WiMAX card.
The laptop ran a speed test every two minutes to check the connectivity and bandwidth of the various links. Here’s what we got:
|Connection||Average Speed (while connected)||Reliability (>0 Kbps)||Good Internet (>2 Mbps)||# of times offline|
|Amtrak Wifi||2.583 Mbps||94.12%||67.65%||2|
|Verizon Mifi||3.875 Mbps||85.29%||70.59%||5|
|Clear WiMax||4.700 Mbps||61.76%||47.06%||13|
Connection performance on the Amtrak when combined using Speedify
Amtrak riders want to stay online with a connection reliable enough to get some work done. This is where Speedify comes in: our bonding VPN service gives users the power to combine two or more Internet connections at once. With Speedify bonding VPN, the Amtrak WiFi and Verizon LTE, we never lost connectivity – that’s 100% uptime! We even had at least 2 Mbps throughput for 85% of the trip.
The chart below plots the speeds of the Verizon, Amtrak and combined connections (Speedify). Because we wanted to see places where the speed is LESS than 2 Mbps, we capped all the speeds at 2 Mbps, so the failures will be clearer:
Bandwidth of each connection, and combined connection, capped at our 2 Mbps goal.
|Connection||Reliability (>0 Kbps)||Good Internet (>2 Mbps)||# of times kicked offline|
|Speedify (Amtrak + Verizon)||100%||85.29%||0|
