Airplane Wi-Fi Is About to Suck Less


Airplane Wi-Fi Is About to Suck Less

Wi-Fi in the sky is a wonderful idea, but unfortunately, it’s painfully unreliable. Boeing has just developed a new calibration technology that will hopefully help make your Boingo better.

Boeing engineers initially developed the new signal test method to comply with regulatory standards, but it will also help engineers optimize your Wi-Fi signal. According to Boeing, some of the problems with connectivity are that with so many bodies and objects moving around inside the tin vessels, even someone getting up to move around the cabin can cause a blip in your connectivity. Using new "proprietary measurement and analysis tools" the new calibration method helps engineers hone in the way a signal is propagated throughout an airplane cabin to maximize efficiency and eliminate weak signal areas inside the cabin. We can’t wait to see if it actually works. [PRNewswire]
