There are two kinds of attorneys on airplanes: those who view their time in the sky as a respite from communications and those who have memorized the entire list of approved electronic devices. For both camps, in-flight Internet has largely been a disappointment. For the turn-it-on crowd, that’s because of slow speeds, unpredictable availability, and a complete absence on the international routes of U.S. carriers. For the turn-it-off contingent, well—that’s because it exists. This status quo, however, is about to change, for better or worse, depending on how you look at it.
