Air Wi-Fi

"IPass Turns Its Users On To In-Flight Wi-Fi"
Full Article - PC World

Business travelers and consumers who subscribe to iPass will be able to get on Aircell's upcoming U.S. in-flight Wi-Fi service

Aircell's GoGo service will turn planes on some domestic flights into Wi-Fi hotspots, with cellular backhaul to the ground. Laptops and smartphones with IEEE 802.11a/b/g will be able to connect. Aircell won't allow either cellular or VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol) voice calls


Wow. A new level to feed the addiction of having to be constantly connected. You'd think something like this would have the potential to interfere with stuff wouldn't you? I don't know, maybe not.. Now we can all connect up to EH-Net in-flight :)

Re: Air Wi-Fi

If the airline gets a cut of the cell charges, it magically doesn't interfere with the instruments...

Heh, we were using Ipass in the gov for a bit (my branch), but stopped.  Too bad.
