Elon Musk company SpaceX is apparently in talks with several airline companies to provide passengers with in-flight WiFi. 

Faster and good internet on airplanes is long late and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is working on it. If reports are to be trusted, Musk now wants to provide in-flight wifi via Starlink satellite internet service. Musk’s company SpaceX is reportedly in talks with several airline companies to supply the commuters with in-flight WiFI through the Starlink satellite internet service. Not too long, Google join forces with SpaceX to get Starlink’s high-speed broadband Internet for its infrastructure.

SpaceX’s VP of Starlink and commercial sales told a panel at the Connected aeronautics Intelligence Summit on Wednesday that the company is working towards on condition that in-flight wifi to travelers. They have our own aeronautics product in development. They have already done some proof to date and they are looking to get that product complete to be put on aircraft in the very near future. They recited as saying by the Verge. Even though Hofeller did not disclose when Starlink will begin proving in-flight wifi, he also said that an announcement is coming “hopefully sooner rather than later.”

For the inexperienced, the airlines currently use satellite broadband providers for inflight Wi-Fi, but the live services use satellites in faraway orbits. On the other hand, The Starlink satellite, orbits closer to the earth which could be one of the key reasons why the speed of the Starlink would be faster and more firm than the other in-flight services used by the airlines.
