Gogo service slow yesterday

Hi everyone:
Taking four long flights yesterday, I decided to purchase a 24 hour access plan. However, on every single flight the service was super slow. I mean as slow as dial up. I've used gogo before but never had this issue. Anyone else experience the same yesterday?

What airline were you flying? Isn't there some GoGo deal on DL at the moment, giving you 30 free minutes? This kind of stuff tends to slow down everyone's speeds.

When I flew to Austin for SXSW earlier in the year, DL gave everyone unlimited GoGo access (since the plane was full of techies), and the Internet was slower than slow because of it. Couldn't even load a page.

Yes, every time I've used the service (a small sample, but when it is bad every time I cannot justify continuing to pay and hoping it will be better the next time). Just a couple of my experiences documented here and here.

It was Delta, and there was a free promo. Thanks for the replies!

Exactly my experience, too. Both on AA and Delta. Too bad, too. I won't buy it any more.
