Inmarsat has begun deploying its Global Xpress high-speed mobile broadband network. Commercial service started at the end of 2015 with three satellites in orbit. Boeing is building a fourth, due to launch later in 2016. Projects:
European Aviation Network (EAN): Set up with the completion of an Inmarsat satellite, due to launch next year. The EAN will allow Deutsche Telekom to deliver a voice and data network to deliver a voice and data network to passenger aircraft across Europe using a mixture of satellite and mobile coverage. High speed capacity at 75Mbps with near-zero latency. It will use 30MHZ of satellite spectrum that covers the European Union.
Vodafone: Global satellite connectivity partnership to further enable uptake of the internet of things (IOT).
