Travellers can experience superfast broadband speeds of over 10mbps throughout their journey.
Ofcom has given green light to the operators of boats, trains and airlines for using the satellite-based technology to offer users super fast broadband throughout their journey.
The approval for the use of so-called ‘earth stations’ on moving vehicles offers an optional means of connection on trains and coaches with broadband speeds up to 10-times faster than the current speed.
Mounted on moving vehicles, ‘earth stations’ would facilitate accessing internet by connecting to a geo-stationary satellite.
Ofcom group director of spectrum Philip Marnick said the latest approval would benefit passengers from superfast broadband on the move at the kind of speeds they expect from their connection at home.
"Today’s decision means that operators of trains, boats and planes will soon be able to begin the process of making these valuable services available to their passengers," Marnick said.
As per the plan, trains do not require a spectrum licence, while planes or ships have to be approved by Ofcom, as they cross into other countries.
The UK telecoms regulator claims that single earth station would receive speeds of around 50Mbps, offering individual passengers with over 10mbps.
