<<Wouldn't KVHI's 2-way broadband mobile product be a great application for commercial aircraft? You would just need a pipe to the seat along with a plug-in for the traveller's laptop. As close as they put the seats today it wouldn't take much fiber to pipe the plane from the antenna to the seat.>>

The image that sparked was hilarious. A whole plane full of level II day traders! But think also of receiving 500 TV channels during the flight!

Obviously, the plane would have to be "ready" for this with previously installed fiber to each seat. Does anyone know if the manufacturers are doing this today?

The idea seems a good one. The world is becoming increasingly Internet hungry and you have a captive audience for hours.

It's a ways off in the future, but why not?
