Delta to offer Wi-Fi on all domestic planes
Finally a major carrier steps up with wireless access on domestic flights starting this fall. International, anyone?
Delta Air Lines announced Tuesday that it will outfit its domestic aircraft with Wi-Fi over the next year.
The airline expects to have more than 330 aircraft complete by summer 2009. The full fleet agreement between Aircell and Delta will provide a consistent, convenient experience for customers traveling on the airline who wish to use the Gogo Internet service.
The Aircell Gogo service, which will be on the first planes this fall, will run $9.95 or $12.95 for trips under or over three hours, respectively, and will allow connection of any Wi-Fi device. It will be interesting to see what ports and applications they shut down--that is, Skype or other voice over Internet Protocol apps, and of course, porn.
Consider the idea of social networking or gaming across your plane. Kinda cool.
