IN-FLIGHT INTERNET ACCESS

Arcep publishes the decision authorising Inmarsat Ventures Limited to operate ground-based stations to complement its satellite system 

Paris, 26 February 2018

Today, Arcep is publishing a decision authorising Inmarsat Ventures Limited to operate ground-based stations to complement its mobile satellite system in the 2 GHz MSS band.

This decision follows through on a public consultation that ran from 13 July to 8 September 2017, whose purpose was to gather feedback from several stakeholders on the draft authorisation decision. The contributions to this consultation are also being published today.

The authorisation being issued to Inmarsat will enable it to provide in-flight internet access services as part of its EAN (European Aviation Network) project, thanks to dual connectivity: via satellite and through the use of complementary ground stations, authorised by the decision being published today.
