The device will allow users of mobile phones to use these forms of communication without having to connect to WiFi. The company behind the Bluetooth access point says that each aircraft can be fitted with Bluetooth access tech for about $10,000 per aircraft compared to WiFi systems costing about $100,000 per aircraft.
