Yes! And it can scratch the part of my back I can't reach with my fingers. :^)

A: We recommend that you use T Wi-Fi Commuter Rail Connect for simple web services. Downloading or emailing large file attachments may result in the loss of the file.

Must reassociate all the time then and lose the IP (?). I wonder if an ssh session, for example, could stay open the whole trip. Then you can do a streaming movie out the window :)

The T's Wi-Fi source is AT&T Wireless - yes, the same cell provider that encounters 4 or 5 dead zones in the half-hour ride between my home and downtown Boston. So when I'm lucky enough to connect, it's to a pokey signal that is destined to drop pronto. On the plus side, it could only get better...

We have a few "wifi zones" in cities spread across the UK. I don't know much about wireless on the trains though [0], [1].

You get free wifi on stagecoach buses on main routes.
