SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — There is new hope for frequent fliers who complain about slow Wi-Fi connections. In-flight wireless internet provider Gogo said it will start offering satellite connections, which will significantly boost streaming speeds.
But is the service worth it? I’m happy about it, but it’s very much a First-World problem to complain that the internet on your plane isn’t as fast as you want it to be. Flying at 600 miles an hour, the fact that it works at all is a miracle.
The service has been slow though. I’m at a point where I can’t even use Gmail and hit send without the process taking 30 seconds and sometimes even longer.
