Row44 approved to operate broadband on North Atlantic flights

Row 44 has received approval from the FCC to operate its service aboard commercial aircraft over the Atlantic Ocean.It is claimed by Row44 that the FCC license, for the T11N North Atlantic Oceanic Coverage satellite, means the in-flight broadband connectivity provider is the only supplier allowed to operate and charge for in-flight broadband connectivity on transatlantic flights.“This license creates complete seamlessness for Row 44¹s broadband across the Atlantic,” commented Howard Lefkowitz, chief commercial officer of Row44. “Row 44 is now the only company in the world whose airline customers can charge for in-flight broadband on, say, a transatlantic flight from Paris to New York.”Row 44 is authorized for operation in over 100 countries, on four continents. The company¹s current network coverage includes service over the US, Mexico and Canada, with transatlantic coverage linking North America and Europe expected in 2011.
