For these who wish to up their travel game, there’s one explicit perk that tends to entice many travellers: Wi-Fi. A brand new research by HighSpeedInternet.com has ranked in-flight Wi-Fi on numerous airways within the US. Basing scores on pace, availability and value, JetBlue, Southwest, Virgin America and Delta Air Lines have come out on prime for the company traveller.
Virgin America delivers a strong 15Mbps and has Wi-Fi on board all flights for business travellers, nonetheless, it comes out as the most costly costing as much as US$25 per day. Though not 100% obtainable throughout all of its flights, JetBlue’s Wi-Fi is as quick as Virgin America’s and is totally free. JetBlue is the 6th largest provider within the US.
“Along with being the most affordable, JetBlue’s in-flight Wi-Fi is also among the fastest; it’s tied with Delta and Virgin America at 15 Mbps,” writes John Dilley of HighSpeedInternet.com.
“Southwest grabbed the second spot with a great balance of affordability and availability. It offers in-flight Wi-Fi on 90% of its ASM [Available Seat Miles: the total service capacity of an airline] and charges just $8 per day.”
The research notes that when you want Wi-Fi in your flight, keep away from Frontier Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, and Spirit Airlines as they don’t provide in-flight Wi-Fi companies on any of their ASM.
“When traveling for business, out-of-pocket cost isn’t as high of a concern” notes Dilley. “If you’re an employee, your company will likely be footing the bill. And if you’re a business owner, paying for reliable in-flight internet could keep your employees productive while traveling. After all, you gotta spend money to make money!”
