The first stats on Qantas's fast, free inflight Wi-Fi are in: nearly a third of all passengers on the first 'net-connected jet have been using the service, reliability is excellent, and download speeds are faster than most homes' ADSL connections.

We're up in the air today for a quick plane journey to test out Qantas's brand new in-flight internet, which is available today to Qantas flyers for free and for the first time. It's only on a single jet -- ours! -- for now, but will be rolled out to the entire Qantas fleet throughout the year. Join in as we put it through its paces.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

After a short delay and a whole bunch of testing, Qantas's first domestic jet with onboard Wi-Fi is set to take to the skies on regular passenger service. It's the first plane of Qantas's entire domestic and international short-haul fleet to be hooked up, but the rest will follow in short order.
