Boeing to cancel Connexion in-flight Internet

Wireless Networking

andyring writes "According to IHT, Boeing will cancel it's in-air high-speed wireless Internet service due to low usage and lack of demand. Currently, 156 aircraft on 12 airlines are outfitted with the service, and usage amounted to "low single digits" per flight despite expectations that the service would be a big hit. Airbus does plan to have it's own similar service when they deliver the first massive A380s to Singapore Airlines by the end of the year. What would it take for this service to be successful?"
