I used it over a year ago when Connexion was in testing. Quite cool. I can really say that i can live on a plane with this sort of technology.
I used wireless to connect, speeds were similar to my cable modem at home, with a slight lag when accessing web pages, etc. I think this has to do with the sat. communication lag before my request goes up to the sat and is beemed down to the recieving station.
I'm hoping SQ
will surprise us all on 28 June with high speed access from EWR
. The seats on the leadership have RJ
-45 Ethernet jacks in the armrests, its just a matter of getting conexxion running up on the roof. I could really use the highspeed on that flight, get a load of work done.
It seems to me that high speed is going to be like computer power was at first. It will become the norm in 5 years (i hope).
