More In-Flight Broadband Companies Spring Up
Though will you ever actually see them?
Wi-Fi Networking News
points to two more in-flight broadband companies that are planning services you'll likely never see because U.S. airlines can't afford pillows
, much less broadband systems. A company by the name of Row 44
is developing a Ku band system that's similar to the failed Boeing Connexion service -- offering 81 Mbps to each plane. According to the report, it will take two days to install the 150 pound system. Starling
is offering a Ku band system that will offer 10-15Mbps.
