Inmarsat upgrades inflight broadband services

Satellite communications firm Inmarsat has announced a brand aviation new top-end package for its Jet ConneX business aviation inflight broadband solution.

The new concept will enable unlimited data usage and 33% higher speeds compared to the service’s previous fastest plan, and will provide new and existing Jet ConneX customers with what the company is saying “unrivalled performance and the fastest connectivity speeds available in the market.”

Jet ConneX, powered by Inmarsat’s wholly-owned and operated network of high-throughput satellites, provides connectivity in the air, similar to what has previously only been available on the ground, with coverage across 100% of major routes.

Kai Tang, senior vice president of Channel at Inmarsat Aviation, said: “Jet ConneX has received an extremely positive response from the business aviation market. More than 500 installations have already been completed and take-up rates show no signs of slowing down.

“We strive to evolve the service in response to market feedback, as the launch of JX-Pro today has shown. Demand is expected to be strong and we look forward to rolling out the ground-breaking new capabilities of this package offering with our global network of partners.”
