Anyone remember that insane iPass deal for unlimited inflight Wi-Fi for just $10 per month that no one can get anymore? This deal is almost as good.
Short of signing up for Gogo's unlimited monthly plans, which start at $49.95, T-Mobile's One PLUS add-on plan is probably the best in-flight Wi-Fi deal out there. For an extra $15 per month, it's possible to get unlimited in-flight Wi-Fi texting and internet on all Gogo-enabled flights (to, from, or within the U.S.) by signing up for ONE Plus.
Currently, this monthly pass is $4 less than what it costs for a single, all-day Gogo pass.
This deal is only available to existing T-Mobile customers that have a current plan. Customers can already get one free hour of unlimited in-flight texting and Wi-Fi, but this is sans time restrictions.
There are some caveats, though. The Wi-Fi is limited to one device — mainly the phone.
The Verge reporter Dani Deahl observes that:
The only limitation was that it could only be used on her phone. “But I can do enough work on my phone at this point where it’s kind of a non-issue,” Deahl said. “I don’t need my laptop to write an email or look at a Google Doc.”
Or, hook it up to a Bluetooth keyboard, problem solved! Routers also help.
The ONE Plus add-on also comes with a host of other benefits, like HD streaming and 20GB of 4G LTE mobile hotspot data. Most importantly, it also doubles internet and data speeds abroad.
