Fast in-flight WiFi Is Soon Landing In Europe

Tired of slow Wifi speeds during flight? This is going to change now.

Flying on planes implies that the chances of you spending time on the internet will be really weak, unless you have no apprehensions of paying for in-flight WiFi services.

And, after you select such flights, these services have a tendency to be extremely slow. However, there is good news.

If you are a frequent Europe visitor or you are from Europe or will be flying from Europe, all of that is soon going to change.

This is because of another joint-endeavor between satellite company Inmarsat and operator Deutsche Telekom.

Both organizations have recently declared an association which will see the launch of the European Aviation Network.

This new service will combine LTE and satellite networks while keeping in mind the end goal to convey high speed internet crosswise over Europe that is all due to the multi-beam satellites that can cover all the EU member countries.

Lufthansa is expected to be the first European airline to trial the new European Aviation Network in 2017, implying that despite everything, we have around 2 years before that happens, so until then we guess travelers will just have to rely on what’s currently available.

No word on how much this service could potentially cost customers, yet given the present pricing for in-flight WiFi services, its far-fetched this new service will be cheaper.
