Cal Train Tests Wi-Fi at Speeds Up to 79 Miles Per Hour

MercuryNews.com | 08/01/2006 | Caltrain: WiFi test works between Millbrae and Palo Alto The Mercury News is reporting that Caltrain has successfully tested a wireless broadband internet system on one of it’s trains at speeds of up to 79 miles an hour.

Not sure what this means in terms of future wi-fi access on public transportation. But if they ever get wi-fi on BART you’ll hear a big hot donkey from me.

    This is great news! current mobile broadband solutions stop working at 70mph. I commute for over an hour on the train and having any type of interenet is great news.

  4. Seems odd this is news, GNER in the UK have been running wifi on their trains for quite a while.
