Continental Airlines plans to roll out WiFi Internet service on flights within the U.S. beginning next year.

Continental is working with inflight entertainment provider LiveTV to offer the service via Ka-band.

Ka-band is supposed to offer higher transmission speeds for browsing content-rich websites, sending and receiving e-mails and downloading files.

Ka-band will utilize ViaSat’s ViaSat-1, which will be the world’s highest-capacity satellite upon its launch later in 2011.

Continental is looking at offering the WiFi service on over 200 domestic Boeing 737 and 757 aircraft.

It is unclear how much Continental plans to charge for the WiFi service.

Continental’s sister company United Airlines currently offers inflight Internet service on 14 aircraft, including on all premium service flights linking New York Kennedy with Los Angeles and San Francisco.
