Low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines announced last week that it will install WiFi throughout its fleet by summer 2019.

Spirit will begin offering it on some of its aircraft later this year, making it the first ultra-low-cost North American carrier to do so.

It is expected to cost under $7, with passengers using their own phones, tablets, and laptops to logon. Prices will be based on flight distance and bandwidth usage.
