Google Chrome To Provide Wi-Fi Services Free on Virgin, AirTran and Delta Flights Till January 2

Written By Sam on 9 November 2010

Keeping the holiday spirit intact, Google Chrome will now provide Wi-Fi services free on Virgin, AirTran and Delta flights. Repeating last years successful giveaway of providing free Wi-Fi services in airports in the US, this year Google Chrome goes one step further and offers its in-flight users free Wi-Fi services, on most domestic flights of Virgin, AirTran and Delta starting on November 20, 2010 up to January 2, 2011. This covers all major holiday dates like Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s.

GoGo In-flight Internet will be the official provider of these free services. Where users usually paid $5 to $13 for an in-flight internet pass depending on the duration of the flight, they can now enjoy free services no matter where they fly to.

The downside though will be that the speed of the internet will be affected, since number of users will increase due to free services. You might not be able to play your favorite online games, but at least checking your e-mail a few times during your flight will be possible.

Google Chrome is definitely making sure that flyers remain connected to their families for updates and plan their family dinners and get-together while they travel home. For those working over time, send last minute instructions and submitting work while in flight will also be possible.

And if their in-flight browsing experience turns out to be satisfactory, Google may have a few more loyal Chrome users by the end of the year.
