Read this interesting story this morning:
A company by the name of Boeingconnexion provides the service.
It not only means in flight Internet connections, but free phone calls worldwide while sitting in a jet at 35,000 feet.
Well, it still costs for the service, starts at~$8USD, but it peaks out at ~$30USD for the longest flights.
I'll bet within 3 years, all domestic airlines will have this.
Next trains and automobiles. :-)
