Statement by Ryan Heath on the decision by the EC to give airlines the green light for 3G and 4G broadband services in aircraft

60 views

On 14 November 2013, Ryan Heath, Spokesperson of Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Digital Agenda, made a statement on the new rules adopted by the European Commission that allow the latest wireless communication technology to be used by passengers on board aircraft flying over the European Union. Spectrum for 3G (UMTS) and 4G (LTE) communications may now be used above an altitude of 3000 metres. This EU decision creates the possibility for airlines - rather than a right for passengers - to allow use of smart phones and tablets during flights. But, in order for this service to work, airlines must install specific hardware on board each concerned airplane.
