Inmarsat, the world leader in global mobile satellite communications, has announced a brand new top-end package for its Jet ConneX business aviation inflight broadband solution, with unlimited data usage and 33% higher speeds compared to the service’s previous fastest plan.
The new ‘JX-Pro’ package was unveiled today at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva. It provides new and existing Jet ConneX customers with unrivalled performance and the fastest connectivity speeds available in the market.
Jet ConneX is the only global, high-speed inflight broadband option available in Ka-band for business jets today. Powered by Inmarsat’s wholly-owned and operated network of high-throughput satellites, it provides fast and reliable connectivity in the air, similar to what has previously only been available on the ground, with coverage across 100% of major routes.
Kai Tang, Senior Vice President of Channel at Inmarsat Aviation, said: “Jet ConneX has received an extremely positive response from the business aviation market. More than 500 installations have already been completed and take-up rates show no signs of slowing down.
“We strive to evolve the service in response to market feedback, as the launch of JX-Pro today has shown. Demand is expected to be strong and we look forward to rolling out the ground-breaking new capabilities of this package offering with our global network of partners.”
Jet ConneX will benefit from Inmarsat’s confirmed investment in new Ka-band payloads to further enhance its global service, with new satellite launches scheduled in 2019, 2020 and 2021. In addition, planning is currently underway for Inmarsat’s next generation of satellites.
