Sat broadband on Jet Blue

September 22, 2010

US discount airline JetBlue announced a deal with ViaSat  to put fast broadband links on its 160 aircraft. The potentially ground-breaking deal would fit the airline’s Airbus and Embraer planes with Ka-band links which have the ability to transmit high-speed data and handle broadband entertainment.

The installation would be the first of its kind in the fast-growing inflight entertainment industry.
