    The in-flight Wi-Fi market has emerged to offer customers the same benefits of broadband connectivity that they enjoy on the ground. While the market has been in development for over a decade, in-flight Wi-Fi has only recently taken off. Deployments of Wi-Fi onboard airplanes have gained strength over the last few years, with availability reaching critical mass on some airlines.

    New In-Stat research, forecasts that in-flight Wi-Fi broadband deployments will surpass 6,100 planes worldwide in 2015. "The installed base of Wi-Fi-enabled devices has increased enormously over the past decade," says Amy Cravens, Senior Analyst. "With more people carrying Wi-Fi-enabled devices, the potential addressable market has increased multi-fold."

    While this is all good. Wish there was some way to increase the speed of the connection. It is a real impediment to getting work done on a flight

    Yep, a strong stable connection with a bit of hustle makes the difference.
