[Via Satellite 12-13-13] In-flight connectivity options have increased with the launch of JetBlue’s Fly-Fi in-flight Wi-Fi service. Fly-Fi is designed to deliver high-quality Internet capable of serving 50 to 70 personal devices simultaneously.

The system – including a LiveTV portal, aircraft Wi-Fi system, and integration for JetBlue – is capable of delivering 12 Mbps or more to each connected passenger. The satellite-based system, Exede In The Air, can also operate on the ground, enabling airlines to take advantage of the recent FAA ruling allowing passengers to use their personal electronic devices at all stages of flight, with gate-to-gate Wi-Fi connections.
