JetBlue to Roll Out Fleet-wide Wi-Fi in Early 2013…And It’ll Be Free (at First)

Somehow I missed this a few days ago: JetBlue will roll out high-speed wi-fi on its entire fleet in early 2013.

The airline will use the high-speed ka-band wi-fi and, at least at first, will be free, which is huge since just about everyone else charges for the service. Well, it will be free for the first 30 planes as they roll out the service, and I assume they’ll start charging after that (though they’ve kept their Live TV as a free product, so who knows). The ka-band service is supposed to be 5 times (or so) faster than wi-fi found on other airlines.
