United and Continental plan to roll out in-flight Wi-Fi during 2012

The airlines are finally catching on that passengers want decent internet access when they fly. United and Continental will be partnering with Panasonic Avionics to bring in-flight high speed connections via satellite based Wi-Fi that will be fast enough to stream video.

According to officials at the company, Panasonic’s Ku-band satellite technology offers faster speeds than air-to-ground connectivity which is the technology used by Gogo Inflight Internet service.
