I just received the following e-mail from a friend, who is using Aircell’s Gogo connectivity service in the sky right now. The Vonage speedtest says a lot (check out part of a screen grab below). I gotta ask, however: What’s up with the steep discounts already?
sending live from AA Flt 34 LAX-JFK – Gogo is great – $12.95 (less a 25% promo coupon) – and VERY respectable speed. Don’t know if you’re written it up yet but VERY pleased. I’m streaming WQXR and it sounds fine….VoIP is verboten yet – but I tried a test and it’s pretty choppy – they’re probably doing that intentionally for now since the bandwidth is good enough for it to work.
