As the in-flight wifi is available from various airline carriers across the globe, the key of the in-flight wifi is the internet speed. Without a reasonable internet speed, it won’t be usable at all even for the web browsing.

I have tested the in-flight wifi speed so far on two carriers: Delta Air Lines and EVA Air. Here are my findings:

  1. Delta Air Lines
