Qantas has been promising in-flight internet access on a limited number of domestic services for a little while now. But the trial is being delayed because of stability issues. Last November, Qantas said “We are very excited that we are a step closer to introducing our fast and free inflight Wi-Fi”.
Well, that step seems to be a little longer than expected. A scheduled media demonstration planned for today was pulled over the weekend.
The service was expected to deliver between 7Mbps and 12Mbps to each passenger with a partner deal locked in with Stan for streaming media with other services expected to follow.
