I think it's now called Global Eagle but I thought they had some planes on another service.

UPDATE

They were also using Panasonic Avionics but announced at the beginning of the year they were dropping them. Not sure if they have replaced it on all the planes that it was installed on.

Yep, Global Eagle (Row 44 owner) is now WN's sole provider. They used Panasonic on some airplanes, but they should be gone by now.

I think they allow texting onboard for free though.

Are there any deals on via ROW44 for discounts, etc?

This was mildly amusing the first couple of times it was posted here. Not so much in the countless posts since then.
