WiFi at sea

Happy New Year everyone.
Where there's a niche, there's a market, some would say. Obviously in agreement with this axiom, Wheat Wireless is building out a coastal WiFi network, targeting (you guessed it) cruise ships and other maritime wayfarers. Though still unrealized, Wheat's seagoing network is said to reach as far as 300 miles out into sea.

My analysis? As if mystery flu epidemics weren't motivation enough, now we're being given the "opportunity" to take work with us on a cruise? Thank you, but no.
