Earlier this week, I wrote extensively about the Passenger Communications Coalition, a group of stakeholders – including AeroMobile and OnAir – whose goal is to convince Congress not to pass the “Hang Up Act”, which is intended to outlaw the use of in-flight mobile phones for voice communications.
Well, the coalition’s web site has just gone live (a heads up to the excellent Wired Blog Network, which previously noted the irony of the web site not working). Let’s just say this – the web site is definitely worth a look, and if you care about this subject, it offers ways to get involved.
One interesting fact mentioned by the coalition – the Hang Up Act does not affect private corporate jets. “Why should only the privileged get the benefit of staying connected in flight,” they ask. Why indeed.
