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”.
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?
