Good news from Qantas: the airline will provide free, fast, onboard wi-fi on domestic flights in 2017. Qantas says the new service will be “up to 10 times faster than conventional on-board wi-fi”. Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said it would be free – presumably it will be included in the airfare rather than as an user-pays option.
“As a premium carrier, delivering value for money to our customers is extremely important to us. That’s why we’ll be offering access to wi-fi for free, on top of all the other things that are included when you fly Qantas,” Mr Joyce said.
Hopefully, Qantas budget airline subsidiary Jetstar will do the same…
