Airlines rushing to give you Internet access on flights

According to a NY Times article, the plane web access race is heating up. Here's an example of what you can look forward to. Tenzing [Communications], which had previously signed up three foreign airlines for its in-flight Internet service, aims to equip 50 planes for e-mail and limited Web access by the end of this year, and about 200 by the end of next year. ... Under Tenzing's service, customers would pay a flat fee of $4.95 to see e-mail headlines, and then pay 50 cents a page to read those e-mails. In addition, customers could access certain Web sites in flight for free. By contrast, Connexion's offering is expected to cost about $20 per hour. Both services are to be delivered via satellite, though Tenzing is starting out with slower speeds to get an early jump, while Connexion plans to launch with a speedier broadband connection.
