European Union to Allow In-Flight 5G Use

European Union to Allow In-Flight 5G Use

Posted December 3, 2022 at 1:00am by iClarified · 3585 views
The European Union has decided that airlines will be able to provide the latest 5G technology on their planes, alongside previous mobile technology. This means that passengers aboard flights in the EU will be able to use their mobile phones to the maximum of their capacity and features, just like with a ground-based 5G mobile network.

Thierry Breton, Commissioner for the Internal market says, "5G will enable innovative services for people and growth opportunities for European companies. The sky is no longer a limit when it comes to possibilities offered by super-fast, high-capacity connectivity."

The decision paves the way for wide spread deployment of 5G services.

The service is provided within the cabin of an equipped aircraft using special network equipment, the so-called 'pico-cell', to connect the users and route calls, texts, and data, typically via a satellite network, between the airplane and the ground-based mobile network.

The Commission also amended an implementing decision on 5GHz frequency bands, which makes the bands available for Wi-Fi in road transport, for example in cars and buses. The amending decision lays the foundation for innovations in the automotive industry and potentially for Metaverse applications. According to the amendment of the implementing decision, the Member States shall make the 5GHz frequency bands available for use aboard road vehicles as early as possible and at the latest by 30 June 2023.
