Blogging At 37,000 Feet via Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi on Virgin America

Blogging at 37,000 Feet

I’m posting this via the Gogo inflight internet service on a Virgin America flight from SFO to LAX. I’m getting speeds of 1.3 Mbps down, but only 0.08 Mbps up (the download speed is what really matters and it’s pretty quick).

The pricing is $9.95 on flights shorter than 3 hours and $12.95 on flights 3 hours or longer. Along with Virgin America, Gogo is rolling out service on American Airlines, Delta, United and Air Canada. Virgin America plans to have Wi-Fi enabled on all of their planes by June.

This really makes air travel so much more tolerable. I can’t wait until all of the airlines offer this kind of service.
