Wi-Fi: Coming Soon On Board U.S. Airplanes

AirCell’s newly-acquired radio spectrum license might change the world of in-flight Internet access for passengers aboard US commercial airplanes. The new spectrum would allow “affordable” broadband service without conflicting with the federal ban on in-flight cell phone use. The calls, which would travel over a different frequency, wouldn’t pose a threat to aircraft navigational systems. Not all travelers will be pleased with the new service; broadband access also allows VoIP phone calls — and lots of talking out loud in the next seat.
