Boeing Internet

Noah Adams speaks with Ric Vandermeulen, director of strategic initiatives for Boeing Commercial Information systems. He says new technology will allow passengers on planes to get live radio and television news, and the internet access. He says the speed will be the same as you are used to you at home or the office. It's a LAN-based network. Live news and major events will be available through content providers. It'll be up to the airlines to choose. Radio service also will be provided. They are figuring out how to provide global service for seemless service.
