New Delhi: Soon you’ll be able to make mobile calls and surf internet while flying 10,000 meters above in the sky on a commercial airplane.
Telecom regulator Trai on Friday issued a consultation paper on framing guidelines for full-fledged in-flight mobile services. After Trai receives feedback from various sections it will firm up its recommendations on the issue.
Trai said that given the rapidly expanding demand for ‘In-Flight Communication’, there is a proposal to introduce In-Flight Connectivity for voice, data and video services over Indian airspace for domestic, international and over-flying flight in Indian airspace.
The DoT has requested Trai to furnish its recommendations on IFC, it said.
