Submission + - United To Offer Wi-Fi On Flights (

CowboyRobot writes: "United Airlines has installed Panasonic Avionics Corporation's Ku-band satellite technology on some of its wide-body aircraft. Internet service will first be offered on long-haul flights, followed later this year on shorter flights. The first planes to get the service are ocean-crossing Boeing 747s, and two cross-country Airbus 319s. United said it should have the service available on about 300 planes by the end of the year. United will offer the Wi-Fi service to passengers at a range of price points at two different speeds although it hasn't specified exactly what those speeds will be. The slower service will cost between $3.99 and $14.99 and faster service will cost between $5.99 and $19.99 per flight, depending on the duration."
