If you’re considering an investment in inflight Wi-Fi service for your business or private jet, knowing what you should look for can help you choose a solution with confidence. When connecting to the Internet in flight, you may have high expectations based on what you experience on the ground.
Based on the airborne network you choose, transitioning your online activities from office to aircraft can go without a hitch, or you might be forced to pause what you’re doing until you arrive at your next destination. Knowing what you want to do when connecting in flight, and knowing how to make sense of the choices available to you can go a long way.
At Gogo, we know a thing or two about what to consider when choosing an inflight connectivity provider. To be sure you get a Wi-Fi solution that works, we’ve created a quick list of the top five questions to ask when choosing an inflight connectivity network.
Q1: Does speed matter?
Let's face it. When it comes to connectivity, you hear a lot about speed. Sure, speed matters, but it's not the only thing to consider when choosing your inflight Internet network.
Network speed is like the speed limit on a highway. It tells you how fast you can go - but it doesn't tell you how fast you will go. That's an important distinction.
Q2: What's the difference between speed and capacity?
If speed tells you how fast you can drive on a highway, capacity tells you how many lanes the highway has.
Q3: How reliable is the airborne network?
Is your highway full of potholes, construction zones and detours? You should find out because a highway's physical condition can also affect the quality of your drive.
