American low-cost airline JetBlue has launched an "always-free and speedy Wi-Fi connectivity" service onboard all of its aircraft.

Announced on Wednesday, the service is said to be available for passengers starting from the departure gate to the arrival gate.

"JetBlue’s Fly-Fi, which clocks in at broadband speeds beating sluggish and pricey Wi-Fi services onboard other carriers, keeps customers connected with an internet experience similar to what they have at home, including the ability to stream video and use multiple devices at once," stated the company.

The carrier's vice president for marketing Jamie Perry boasted that "JetBlue is now the only airline to offer free, high-speed Wi-Fi, live TV and movies for all customers on every plane."

The airline's broadband internet Fly-Fi was introduced in December 2013 and has been installed on its entire fleet of 227 Airbus A320s, A321s and Embraer 190s. The service, however, will not be available on flights operating outside of the continental United States. (kes)
