June 6, 2005 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - Web hosting providers will be glad to know that the Internet is yet again expanding. The New York Times reported today that United Airlines is planning on an in-flight Wi-Fi service for domestic flights by the end of 2006.
According to the Times article the airline will announce today that regulators have given approval to the plan.
While some airlines already offer Wi-Fi service on International flights there are no domestic American flights that currently offer access to the Internet in-flight. Providing airlines Internet access is yet another niche that hosting providers can worm their way into to ease the pressure from the highly competitive industry.
