Gogo, Samsung Offer Free In-Flight Internet Service with Select Tablets
[Via Satellite 03-24-2014] Gogo and Samsung will join forces to offer a full year, or up to 36 flights, of Gogo in-flight Internet access with the purchase of select Samsung tablets. The tablets include the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2, Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 and Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4.
To access the complimentary Internet service, passengers have to launch their Internet browser on any Gogo equipped flight and they will be automatically directed to a landing page that will grant them Internet access.
“While traveling at 30,000 feet, tablets are great tools for staying productive in-flight,” says Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo’s chief commercial officer. “We know that the number of passengers using tablets in-flight to connect through Gogo is a growing segment and that tablets today make up 34 percent of the devices using the service.”
