European Union's big announcement, 5G in flights: „Sky no longer a limit“
Flyers to make phone calls, send and receive text messages, and utilise data just like they would on the ground.
Airlines operating in and out of countries that are members of the European Union will be permitted to offer both the most recent 5G technology and older mobile technology generations on their aircraft, according to an announcement from the EU. According to a statement from the European Commission, this allows flyers to make phone calls, send and receive text messages, and utilise data just like they would on the ground.
The change occurred after the European Commission revised the decision on spectrum that had already been put into effect for mobile communications on board aircraft. According to the European Union, the 5G service will be delivered via specialised network hardware known as a pico-cell that connects the in-flight network to the ground via satellite.
According to the statement, travellers on flights within the EU would be able to utilise their mobile devices to the fullest extent possible.
"5G will enable novel services for consumers and growth prospects for European enterprises," said Thierry Breton, commissioner for the internal market of the European Council. When it comes to the opportunities provided by ultra-fast, high-capacity connectivity, the sky is no longer the limit.
