In flight Wi-Fi could soon become a reality

/ 6 years ago

Ever wished you can access the internet while you’re on a plane, more so during the really long international flights? Hopefully it wouldn’t take long for that to happen on all flights as the FCC adopted a Report and Order about regulatory requirements for broadband services on an aircraft.

It is suggested that there would be broadband modules placed on the exterior of the aircraft with a licensed application and a set of regulations for internet service providers.

The aircraft’s broadband modules would conenct via a fixed satellite service and geostationary orbit space station. Once the devices are approved by the FCC and the FAA approves that the broadband modules do not interfere with aircraft instruments, airlines will be allowed to start installing these units in their planes.
