Connexion by Boeing and NTT DoCoMo to launch in-flight roaming service
Posted on 6-Oct-2004 21:52 | Tags Filed under: News



Connexion by Boeing and NTT DoCoMo, Inc. are launching a roaming service to enable users of NTT DoCoMo's Mzone wireless LAN service to connect to the Connexion by Boeing high-speed Internet service in flight, beginning 22 October.

NTT DoCoMo's Mzone users will be able to connect when in flight, simply by accessing the Connexion by Boeing homepage and entering their Mzone username and password. Billing for the service will be added to users' existing Mzone bills.

The service fee will be a flat rate that varies according to the length of the flight: less than three hours - 1,900 yen (US$17); three to less than six hours - 2,500 yen (US$23); or more than six hours - 3,700 yen (US$33).

Mzone customers will be the world's first airborne passengers to receive integrated billing for high-speed Internet access while flying as the result of a roaming service agreement between a wireless LAN service and Connexion by Boeing.
