Qantas are currently undertaking 'technology trials' for Wi-Fi on their Boeing 737-800’s in preparation for their free internet services launch next month.
Travellers on their Boeing 737 domestic flights will be able to connect their phones, tablets and laptops to a Wi-Fi hotspot to get online. The Boeing 737s will be connected to the National Broadband Network Co's Sky Muster satellites and Qantas have said that the network will be fast enough to stream videos, movies, news and live television and sport. Qantas have also said that the inflight internet will help its cabin crew and pilots with information such as up to date weather data.
The Wi-Fi will be primarily available on Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane routes but Qantas are set to start trials on other aircraft throughout the year including on their Airbus A330 jets.
