Southwest Airlines To Offer Inflight Broadband

Now that inflight broadband is back in fashion, why shouldn’t low-cost operators get in on the action? Southwest Airlines will soon start testing satellite-delivered broadband Internet access on four of its planes. Southern Calif.-based Row 44, which has cut a similar deal with Alaska Airlines, will provide the technology, which will deliver a 30-megabit-per-second data connection to the planes.
