Kiss Sleep Goodbye Thanks to Singapore Airlines’ New In-Flight WiFi

Kiss Sleep Goodbye Thanks to Singapore Airlines’ New In-Flight WiFi

There’s no way we’re going to get to sleep on those overnight A380 flights now, as it sounds like in-flight WiFi is making its way to Singapore Airlines.

Right now plans are still in the works regarding the entire international fleet, but for now there’s going to be some A380s connected to the World Wide Web no matter where you are above the earth. Thanks to plenty of satellites—and the OnAir system—your Facebook, Twitter, Gmail and whatever else accounts will just be a few clicks away. Honestly, we kind of feel a little badly for the inflight magazine right about now.

Loads of technology is required to get the internet to your tray table, and that is all going to come with a price. Thankfully it’s not too expensive, but it’s not unlimited like it is when you connect domestically withGogo. Instead, you’ll find it’s going to be around $12 for 10MB of data and $30 for about 26MB of data. That’s certainly not enough to stream a movie—or even a YouTube video—but it’s better than nothing. Which is a good thing for us, as we still might be able to catch up on some sleep after all.
