European airlines can now offer inflight services thanks to the European Commission. 5G Connectivity, organization has announcedInflight can be made possible by allocating certain spectrum 5G Also available: “previous mobile technology generations.” Passengers will be connected to an onboard picocell base station which connects to ground-based network via satellite. Calls, texts, and data They are all expected support.

“5G will enable innovative services for people and growth opportunities for European companies,” Thierry Breton (EU commissioner) said it. “The sky is no longer a limit when it comes to possibilities offered by super-fast, high-capacity connectivity.” The Commission’s announcement does not offer details on exactly when 5G Services may become Flyers available

“The sky is no longer a limit”

Even though passengers were told in the past to place their devices, in “Airplane Mode” The rules for passengers onboard aircraft flights have been relaxed in These are the most recent years. In 2014, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency updated its guidance to say airlines don’t need to require their passengers to use the mode for safety. Although Airplane Mode can limit cellular connectivity, it often allows for other wireless technology. like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Inflight 5G It is unlikely to cause safety concerns because it uses frequencies different from those used for cockpit communication, according to the International Air Transport Association tells The Telegraph. 5GHz spectrum will be used by phones and Up, while planes use the 4.2-4.4GHz range to connect to their networks.

The relationship between the US and the US is called 5G and Air travel has never been more difficult. with An earlier warning was issued by airlines about the rollout new 5G Spectrum near airports could disrupt sensitive inflight equipment. The spectrum rollout should be completed by the middle of next fiscal year to allow airlines enough time to retrofit existing planes. with equipment that isn’t sensitive to the frequencies used. Bloomberg notes The FCC abandoned plans in 2020: Inflight cell connectivity will be allowed due to opposition “safety and national security grounds.”
