Qantas Bringing Free, Fast Wi-fi to Its Planes in 2017

The internet connection is said to be 10x faster than average on-board wi-fi. It’s possible that such data-hungry applications as streaming TV and music, and even Skype, will be permitted in flight.

And it’s to be FREE (my favorite price!).

The broadband provider is ViaSat, which evidently will use a combination of ground stations and satellites to link up to aircraft.

Qantas (often misspelled as Quantas) has a low-cost affiliate named Jetstar, and it’s likely that Jetstar will get the same high speed internet after Qantas does.
