Boeing 737 gets eXConnect broadband service

The next time you step aboard the Boeing 737, don’t be surprised if you are able to experience wireless high-speed broadband service many thousand feet from the ground. According to Boeing, both passengers and crew members are able to take advantage of eXConnect for access to real-time content on a notebook, handheld, as well as other Wi-Fi-enabled device. Airlines can take advantage of this service for enhanced communications in order to receive and send data concerning the aircraft. You will be able to stream videos in a jiffy as well, considering the data transfer speeds of up to 50Mbps – that’s 100 times faster than what is currently available in the air, now how about that? Expect to see more people update their Facebook statuses while in mid-air now.
