Airbus might be working to add a mobile phone network to its airplanes, the European plane manufacturer plans to only support GSM networks, the company told vnunet.com.
What about CDMA, the network that most of the US uses, in addition to Iraq, Japan and Korea?
"There is currently no business case
for us to install a CDMA solution," a spokesperson for OnAir said, the
company that will build and exploit the 30,000 feet high networks on Airbus
About 70 per cent of the world currently uses GSM. But that also means that OnAir is happy to exclude 30 per cent of its potential customer base.
