Boeing preps jets for broadband

Boeing preps jets for broadband "Boeing will charge airlines a one-time fee for each plane they outfit for the network. After that, Boeing will share with the airlines a small cut of the revenue from subscriptions. Passengers will pay about $25 to $35 for access on an eight-hour international flight, less for shorter flights.
The company projects 20 percent of flyers will sign up. On some Lufthansa flights as many as 30 percent of the people on a 747 — or 100 users — are paying for access at peak times."
