European Aviation Network installs first LTE antennas in UK

Thursday 22 September 2016 | 17:09 CET | News
The European Aviation Network (EAN), a project led by Deutsche Telekom in cooperation with Inmarsat, announced it made further progress and that its first LTE antennas are now in place in Hampshire in the South of England. EAN is the world's first combined high-speed network for the airspace above Europe. The partners are working together to enable broadband internet access on board as the EAN combines satellite connectivity from a new Inmarsat S-band satellite with a LTE-based ground network developed and run by Deutsche Telekom.
