    Modem Options While on Airplane

    Hello,

    I have been traveling more frequently lately and find that InFlight WiFi often has issues.

    Is there any feasibility to traveling with a satellite modem that will connect to my laptop and provide broadband internet access while on a plane with a provider like ViaSat or Iridium?


    Best Regards,

    Glass

    I am writing to circle back on this. Any thoughts?

    I will be traveling more often soon and would really like to explore alternatives to being limited to InFlight WiFi availability and uptime.

    Inside a metal tube with portholes? My guess is no. The Iridium hotspot might work intermittently if you tape it to the window, but it would be illegal to operate, as would a cell Mifi.

    The Iridium hotspot is also slow for data.

    Not to mention the stewerdess might think you're a terrorist trying to bring down the plane.
