Southwest Airlines First Offers Gate-to-Gate Wi-Fi Service

They had constantly complained regarding the ban on the usage of electronic gadgets on flights. Passengers were sick and tired of the restrictions on exploring cyberspace while in the space above the ground level. However, now the wait is finally over. Over 435 of the planes owned by Southwest Airlines allow use of e-readers, tablets and MP3 devices during all times when the passengers are on board the flight. 

Southwest Airlines Chief Marketing Officer, Kevin Krone said, "We know this is something Customers have wanted for some time now, and we're excited to give them the freedom to use personal devices while in the air and on the ground. With free live TV compliments of DISH® and the ability to stay connected for the entire flight, Customers can count on Southwest for the best Customer Experience in the business."

This is a good change since previously the only time during which online activity was allowed was when the airplane was 10,000 feet in the air. But thanks to in-flight Wi-Fi technology, tourists, businessmen and general wayfarers on Southwest Airlines may double click and swipe all they want to while comfortably seated. 

The fact that the service costs $8 per device may not be such a huge price to pay for the freedom. After all, in return you get to explore the routes and sites on the information superhighway. The gate-to-gate connectivity is a source of immense bliss for all the Net freaks that can’t stay away from the SERPs for even a moment

However, laptops and similar heavier electronic entities won’t be allowed just yet. After the FAA lifted the majority of restrictions late last month, things are about to radically change. But right now, only Southwest Airlines lends the enviable service to its valued travelers.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
