Europe lets airlines operate 3G and LTE services during flights

Europe lets airlines operate 3G and LTE services during flights

Having just digested the news that they’ll soon be able to use personal electronics during takeoff and landing, European fliers have another rule change to get excited about. The European Commission (EC) has approved the use of 3G and 4G networks on flights in European airspace, allowing airlines to decide whether they want to use these networks to boost internet access for passengers. The Commission had previously allowed airlines to offer 2G services during flights, but data services were unsurprisingly very slow. Although these changes could give you more freedom with your devices on European flights, bear in mind that the decision to let you connect your smartphone will depend solely on the friendliness of your airline.
