Bad news for flying PC users August 18, 2006

Posted by fukumimi in Communications, IT, technology.

It is being reported that Boeing has announced it is getting out of the in-flight internet connectivity business.

Boeing blames poor adoption rates, and apparently a buyer could not be found for the business.

Airbus has an investment in a rival system, OnAir, but it seemed that Boeing was the leader in providing in-fllight broadband, and $30 per flight didn’t seem unreasonable.

Some of us do value the ability to be connected during a long intercontinental flight, it makes time on the plane more productive.

Of course, airlines might be thinking about banning laptops all together, what with terrorism and batteries exploding and all that.
