I think the problem here is that yes, you don't want to waste the time, but you (and few others) are willing to pay what it would really cost to offer fast airborne bandwidth.

A few Mbps are really quite adequate for 99% of the users that *need* in-air connectivity (or simply want it to prevent being bored, like me with IRC and web browsing). If people want to do heavy VNC work or video streaming on board aircraft, they're going to have to pay more than $20 for it. It's that simple.

Comment Re: Question from a non American (Score 1) 203

The largest Canadian airports have US preclearance, so you clear before you leave Canada. Smaller Canadian airports with US service still have passengers clear customs and immigration at the American airport where they land.

Some Caribbean, Irish, and Middle Eastern airports have US preclearance too but as far as I know, none of these airlines serve LaGuardia.
