Boeing ends high-speed Internet access service for planes

After months of speculation, Boeing made the announcement that it is abandoning its Connexion unit that offers high-speed Internet services to planes. The service worked well via a satellite connection but attracted little interest from the majority of U.S. airlines. Passengers didn't have a desire to pay individual access fees of $10 to $27 to have high-speed Internet access. With the recent auction of in-flight air-to-ground services, it appears many airlines are waiting for cheaper services from these players.
