AT&T announced that it will be abandoning plans to bring in-flight wireless connectivity. The carrier will not be bringing its 4G LTE service to the skies as previously planned through an air-to-ground-based service for domestic flights, citing that in-flight connectivity is too risky of an investment.
In a statement to Runway Girl Network, AT&T said:
AT&T rival T-Mobile is offering free limited wireless service through a recent deal with GoGo with free in-flight texting.
Would you want 4G LTE connectivity on your next flight if AT&T had followed through with its plans?
