Telstra Piloting 4G In Qantas Planes


The nation’s largest telco Telstra has built new mobile towers covering the airplane route between Sydney and Melbourne and tested mobile broadband speeds up to 15Mbps to planes in the air

4G in a plane! Oh, but it’s only 15mbit, for an entire plane of people. Hmm. Imagine sharing your ADSL2 connection with ~250 people. Yeah, nah.

I’m actually not that fussed for Internet access between MEL-SYD. It’s only 90 minutes. Qantas should work on getting Internet between Australia and the USA, goddamn, 16 hours without Internet is way too long.
