    It is spectacularly cheap and well below cost. Nice if you can use it.

    Free?? It cost me a whole US $1.00, which I considered a great deal. It worked reliably except that it is turned off over Chinese territory, and that was half of my flight (DXB to KIX).

    While the complimentary 10MB should be sufficient for most passengers, heavier users will have to pay a $1 charge for every additional 600MB.

    The quota has changed to 500MB for $1.00. I'm not sure when it took effect.
    The agreement also stated that the charge was $0.001 per 100KB over the initial quota, but the screen displayed "$0.00 cutting off the last digit which gave the impression that it was free. $0.001 per 100KB works out to $1.00 for every 10mb over the original quota, but I only had used up about 30% of my base quota despite some heavy usage. I actually rebooted my server in Tokyo from the airplane.
