Row 44 has received Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approval to provide broadband connectivity on transatlantic flights, using the T11N North Atlantic oceanic coverage satellite. “This license creates complete seamlessness for Row 44’s broadband across the Atlantic,” said chief commercial officer Howard Lefkowitz. “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’s network now covers the U.S., Mexico and Canada, and the transatlantic service should begin this year.
