NTT DoCoMo and Connexion by Boeing working to bring wi-fi roaming to planes
Posted on 27-Apr-2004 22:44 | Tags Filed under: News



Connexion by Boeing and NTT DoCoMosigned a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for negotiating an associate service provider agreement that would make the Connexion by Boeing real-time, high-speed Internet service available to NTT DoCoMo's Mzone wireless LAN service users. Based on the terms of the agreement the availability is expected to begin around August 2004.

As part of the MOU, Connexion by Boeing and NTT DoCoMo will explore linking their respective networks, providing NTT DoCoMo's Mzone users with a seamless and simplified solution for accessing the full richness of the Internet when in flight. Airline passengers who have an Mzone account will enter their user identification and password to access the Connexion by Boeing service, and they will be able to subsequently receive their billing for service access as an add-on to their existing Mzone bill. The companies will also consider jointly developing new in-flight wireless services for international passengers.

"We are very pleased to join with NTT DoCoMo in making Connexion by Boeing's wireless broadband service more easily accessible for its Mzone users," said Connexion by Boeing President Scott Carson. "Connexion by Boeing is proud to serve NTT DoCoMo's Mzone customers in making their air travel experience even more productive and enjoyable."
