SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— It’s great that we can now get the Internet on planes now, but often times the connection is too slow. The Federal Communications Commission is reportedly taking steps to bring faster, cheaper Wi-Fi connections on airplanes.
On my cross-country flight Friday morning, the airplane got in early, but the Internet was slow. It’s a way to alleviate some of the boredom of flying, but I probably should have been taking a nap or reading a book. But I chose to try to be productive with slow Internet speeds.
I certainly couldn’t have watched video. Some websites wouldn’t load, and even connecting to Gmail wasn’t the smoothest. Believe it or not, it would take two or three minutes for a message to open.
