JetBlue is looking to keep its customers more entertained than ever before while traveling. According to a purported internal memo obtained by The Verge, the discount airline will soon partner with ViaSat to offer free high-speed Internet access across its entire fleet. Initial tests are said to be very fast with 10 Web pages loading in an average of 1 minute and 18 seconds, almost eight times faster than an unnamed competitor. The company will offer in-flight Wi-Fi for free until at least 30 planes have been equipped with the technology, and then the service will reportedly remain free for only “basic email and browsing” purposes.
