So the fact is universally accepted, we are our internet. And without the support of Wi-Fi, we are incomplete with all the tasks of the day. You can be a stay-at-home-mom or a businessman or student, but you know very well that you don’t have the much-needed Wi-Fi when on a flight.
Well, as of now, about twenty-five percent of all US flights provide their customers with Wi-Fi. And another 12 percent are currently in the testing process. This is an expensive venture. They are providing customers with Wi-Fi equal to, or even better than, the connection most of the experience in their own homes.
However, the need for it can’t be ignored. This new in-flight Wi-Fi service works by allowing better contact between the plane and the ground. This will allow internet service providers to share airwaves with satellite communication companies. This idea has been voted unanimously; however, the expenses involved and the basic idea becoming a reality may take years.
The main issue will cost; a service like this will be expensive for the fliers. The Federal Communication Commission has not mentioned how much they plan to sell the licenses and are still unsure how many they plan to sell. At the end of it all, users should want to also pay for a service like this; money is an issue for many especially considering the economy.
So how much would you pay for Wi-Fi in the air? Is it something you are most desperately waiting for?
