    This will be useful for IAD-SLC-OAK-SFO-ATL-IAD this weekend! :)

    Although, IIRC, it was pretty slow last year (??) when there was a free promo...

    Since this requires that I give eBay my email address, is there a check box to opt out of offers from eBay and having them sell my email address to others?

    Dislike this...for those of us with paid subscriptions, letting everyone on for free slows it down tremendously.

    Fortunately, I only have 3 or 4 Delta flights with wi-fi left this year.

    Can I just make up an email address on the plane without initiating an additional free email account? Does the website verify that it is a genuine email address or contact me using it before I can get the half hour of GoGo?

    Random guess, but I'm thinking that since you won't have to open an e-mail to verify this activation (i.e. clicking a link), the fake e-mail address could work rather well here.

    More than likely right but make up a few anyway just in case.

    But the internet will be slow enough on those first 35 minutes above 10,000 feet that no one will want to pay for the remainder of the flight ;)

    I suspect GoGo might be prioritizing service to paying customers now. My most recent experience was nothing like the problems of last year's holiday season with all the free users exceeding the capacity of the system. YMMV

    You are correct. I asked the question in the GoGo Forum a while back.

    Folks, you know what email is most eagerly accepted by GoGo as authentication for this promo...

    Jeff.Robertson@delta.com

    Can he be using DL free GoGo in flight on many different flights at the same time? I wonder how many copies of the spam email he gets from eBay as a result of using this enhancement?

    I think it is based on MAC address rather than email address. I used the 30 minutes and then tried another email address and received a brick! I just logged in with my roaming account at that point.
