Gogo offers $35 unlimited, multi-airline Wi-Fi plan

Gogo gives frequent travelers Wi-Fi subscription

Gogo provided a first for in-flight Internet today by adding a monthly subscription plan to its lineup. Instead of paying per flight or for a 30-day pass, the $35 per month offer gives permanent, auto-renewing Internet access. It should work on all flights covered by Gogo and is potentially much less expensive for those who travel multiple times per month.

For now, the access can be bought through carriers where many or all of the flights have onboard Wi-Fi, including AirTran, American, Delta and Virgin. It should still support Air Canada and others that have Gogo on only a limited number of their aircraft.

Gogo's service works by using an EVDO Revision A-based 3G connection to the ground and sharing it through a Wi-Fi hotspot.
