Raising the Bars: Wi-Fi Revolution at 35,000 Feet
While free Wi-Fi has become common, providing connectivity to an aircraft traveling 500 mph at 35,000 feet is a unique challenge. Offering fast and unlimited broadband satellite Wi-Fi—a bold move a decade ago—is even more crucial today when customers use multiple devices onboard. This fireside chat between Mariya Stoyanova, Director of Product Development at JetBlue, and Edwin Edillon Jr., Product Strategy & Partnerships at Viasat, will examine the difficult challenges of inflight Wi-Fi, review 10 years of technical achievement, and discuss the future of aircraft connectivity.
