Business Traveler (USA) - - UPFRONT -

AT&T plans to launch a high-speed 4G LTE-based in­flight con­nec­tiv­ity ser­vice for air­lines and pas­sen­gers across commercial, busi­ness and gen­eral avi­a­tion. The ser­vice, planned to be avail­able as soon as late 2015, will be ca­pa­ble of pro­vid­ing in-flight broad­band for cus­tomers in­clud­ing re­li­able WiFi and on­board en­ter­tain­ment. Fol­low­ing launch, avi­a­tion cus­tomers can also ex­pect con­nec­tiv­ity so­lu­tions for ar­eas such as cock­pit com­mu­ni­ca­tions, main­te­nance op­er­a­tions and crew ser­vices.

“Ev­ery­one wants ac­cess to high-speed, re­li­able mo­bile In­ter­net wher­ever they are, in­clud­ing at 35,000 feet,” said John Stankey, chief strat­egy of­fi­cer at AT&T. “We are build­ing on AT&T’s sig­nif­i­cant strengths to de­velop in-flight con­nec­tiv­ity tech­nol­ogy un­like any other that ex­ists to­day, based on 4G LTE stan­dards.”
