JetBlue to roll out Wi-Fi in 2013

Miami.– US airline JetBlue revealed this week its intentions to roll out high-speed wireless networking in the first quarter of 2013.

Wi-Fi connectivity is seen by the airline as a powerful asset to win  over customers, particularly ones who travel for work. After carrying out a series of tests, the carrier has chosen the  service provided by ViaSat.

According to press reports, several tests carried out in January showed that the internet provider can load up to 10 web  pages in an average of one minute, a lot faster compared to an unnamed  competitor that took over eight minutes to accomplish the same task.

The budget airline indicates that it will provide the service for free until at least 30 planes have been equipped.

Low-cost JetBlue serves 71 cities in the US and  the Americas with 700 daily flights. The carrier is planning on  launching services this November to several cities including Cartagena,  Colombia and Samana in the Dominican Republic.
