In-Flight Wi-FiIn-Flight Wi-Fi has been on a upward TrendSignal trajectory for nearly 18 months, with two vendor-driven spikes late last year.  News that the FCC was moving forward with allowing in-flight use of additional communication spectrum prompted news of real bandwidth increases for passengers seeking higher in-flight connection speeds.

The FCC announcement was followed by news that the FAA was loosening rules concerning when electronic devices could be used during a passenger flight.

The trend saw an +8 point increase over the May reporting period to a TrendSignal of 65, notching it above the Mobile & Mobility Trends category average of 62 and boosting it +5 rank positions among the peer group.
