Conquering The Skies And Seas

Having cheaper, faster and easier internet access at sea is what we all want. Boeing’s announcement in January that they would launch their Connexion service (satellite-powered broadband connectivity for commercial airliners) for the maritime market as well was very much welcomed. Although there still aren’t any further details available with regard to launch dates, pricing, etc, here you can read an article by a Boeing employee explaining why they are making this move in the first place.
“Vessels need to stay connected, no matter where they are in the world-close to shore or in the shipping lanes across the Pacific and other oceanic regions,” said Connexion by Boeing President Scott Carson. The available maritime market could include as many as 35,000 ships worldwide, he added.”
