VIDEO: Is this the new Wi-SKY Inflight high-speed offering?

A company called Wi-SKY Inflight is making claims that it can change aviation history after demonstrating for execs “a radio that delivered 35-45Mbps to an aircraft at 54 miles from the station radio”.

Key quote:

During the flight last Tuesday, airline representatives plugged in multiple computers and simultaneously made Skype video calls, previewed iTunes online, viewed a web cam of their kitchen back home, played numerous YouTube videos, downloaded an 8.8 MByte email attachment in a few seconds, viewed smooth-flowing video preview trailers and logged onto their VPN at their office.  These tasks are simply not possible with the current slow DSL link that the airlines are offering today.

I’ve never heard of these folks. But I did catch the following video on YouTube last week and sent out a request for more information. I never heard back but is this the Wi-SKY offering?

    looks like he’s in a private jet in that video..wonder if he’s a private investor/or owner starting up his own company or something showing his high speeds working at altitude..

    Looks like the person is running IPERF… it is the best way to test IP throughput performance.

    I use it all the time to test my SATCOM links.

    Do we have enough info to compare VOYT’s Aviation Broadband to Wi-SKY?

    I think they are not the only one with the promise of “broadband” speed through ATG technology.

    Voyant Aviation Broadband http://www.voyant.aero is the other player, they are promising dedicated 35 Mbps to EACH airplane in a full fleet. They had already conducted tests successfully somewhere in mid 2008.

    They have some radio technologies that exploit the airwaves to deliver high speed Internet at high altitudes and they also seem to have broadband acceleration technologies through one of their subsidiaries.
