Developments in In-Flight Wi-Fi Services

Increasing inclination of consumers toward application of high bandwidth has sharply driven demand for in-flight Wi-Fi Analytics services. The need for bandwidth to run applications and do tasks has advanced substantially, and to fulfil the demand for this, in-flight Wi-Fi service providers are now stepping up their game.

SpaceX, a venture by Elon Musk, who is also the pioneer of automotive giant Tesla, is now in talks with several airline companies to provide fast in-flight Wi-Fi in the near future. The space agency is aiming to accomplish this by utilizing its Starlink satellite Internet network. This will enable travelers onboard to enjoy high-speed Internet connectivity.

With around 1,800 satellites already launched for the Starlink network, as stated by SpaceX, Internet speeds are expected surge over the coming years. However, this will only be put to test when SpaceX actually provides the service in one of the flights of other carriers.

Emirates, a huge name in the airline industry, has also recently announced that it has bought back live TV to its commercial aircraft for passengers, but in-flight Wi-Fi has not been talked about, since it was turned off to cut down licensing costs when the COVID-19 pandemic hit in early 2020. The cut down of in-flight Wi-Fi will affect consumers when pandemic restrictions are lifted, but the addition of this service for Emirates’ customers is unlikely.
