Heathrow Wi-Fi: $130 per month?: Heathrow Airport in London now has Wi-Fi service in Terminal One at an oddly high rate: £6 per hour or £85 per month which is about US$10 and US$130. It further hammers home why vendor-neutral host solutions are best in which many competitors get access for a fixed rate to an airport's infrastructure.
I can't see this rate standing because the uptick will be close to nil beyond casual use. This is seatback airphone pricing.
Update: Alan Reiter, Julian Bond, and others have written to let me know that this pricing is British Telecom's standard hot spot rate, so ostensibly £85 covers unlimited service at all BT hot spots, not just Heathrow. Still seems expensive to me, but until there are alternatives and more competition, unlikely to change.
