United Airlines to offer wireless

At long last someone other than Lufthansa, at least someone that actually goes places I need to go, is going to offer in-flight wireless access. But why is it going to be available only in US airspace?

Update: Slashdot has picked up the story...

    The reason it will only be in U.S. airspace is that the plane-to-ground link will be via terestrial antennas (not satellite which Lufthansa uses).

    The FCC is scheduled to auction off a set of frequencies for this type of usage in February 2006.
