Thanks to SmartSky’s twenty times more broadband spectrum and low latency, passengers can enjoy an array of in-flight entertainment options, including gaming, streaming, and productivity tools. They can also make uninterrupted voice calls, send messages, and engage in video conferencing. With SmartSky, staying connected in the air is as seamless as on the ground.

One of the remarkable features of SmartSky’s network is transmission symmetry, ensuring broadband performance for real-time updates on weather conditions, flight planning, aircraft performance, and maintenance information. Passengers and crew members can access critical data effortlessly, even at 35,000 feet.
