F.C.C. Expansion Plan for In-Flight Wi-Fi

What if you could surf the web as a part of the mile high club? Wouldn’t that be an exciting venture? Well, look no further for the FCC has given a guarantee that in-flight internet usage will become an everyday experience. According to an official news release, the provision of Wi-Fi is a positive sign of change. What was once reserved for special elites will now become a commonplace occurrence.

In fact, it will soon be taken for granted by everyone from the company employee visiting his family in another state to the tourist travelling to a foreign nation for fun. The working speed of the connections will be much higher along with lowered costs. This is being done for the good of the group. It will however take a few years of fine tuning to get the whole system so slick that it serves the passengers’ needs better than on the ground. The basic goal is a service provider that is 30 times faster than the average.

The current Wi-Fi that is lent access to on flights is very slow and expensive to boot. This has elicited various complaints from different quarters. There is a persistent and consistent need to get connected, whether at home, in the office premises or on a flight. This has yielded the practical step of granting the facility to ordinary men and women.  And the important thing is it will be available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

Flight travelers can avail the opportunity and increase their productivity as well as spend their leisure time being entertained purposefully. The details of the devices used for service provision include liaisons with satellite companies and cell phone towers. There are pitfalls in the way. The granting of licenses as well as certain interference issues happen to be just two of the major issues facing the FCC.

But no problem is so intractable that it cannot be solved. Despite the prognostications of certain pessimists, the demand has exceeded the point of no return. It is now or never. In this day and age, people simply want connectivity wherever they may happen to be. It is a genuine need of the modern times that cannot be ignored so easily.
