I just received an email from my friend Frank who was traveling tonight onboard the 5:05p Metro-North from Grand Central to Stamford and he needed to check some work related emails so he pulled out his iPod Touch which connects via a Verizon 4G MiFi device but when he was going through the list of available Wi-Fi SSIDs he noticed an SSID which he has never seen before "Metro-North-Guest
". He was able to do a screen capture of the available Wi-Fi connections on his iPod Touch (See attachment) and send it to me.
So does anyone know what the story is here? Has the MTA finally started offering on-board Wi-Fi on the LIRR and MNR? and no he didn't connect to it just in case it was a hacker.
