FCC Wants to Allow Mobiles During Flight in US

| comments

Federal Communications Commission of United States wants that mobiles phones should be allow during the fly in the air. As we all know that we can't make calls, can't pick call, can't text to anyone during the fly, even we have to put our mobile on switching off mode during the fly.

Cell phone calls, texting and other mobile services would be allowed when the aircraft are flying above 10,000 feet, but not during takeoff and landing, according to an official briefed on the proposal.

The commission says on this proposal that...
Our aims to give airline passengers the same communication access in the air that they have on trains and buses or in coffee shops.

"Modern technologies can deliver mobile services in the air safely and reliably, and the time is right to review our outdated and restrictive rules," FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said in a statement. "I look forward to working closely with my colleagues, the FAA and the airline industry on this review of new mobile opportunities for consumers."

The new guidelines would let airlines install special equipment to relay wireless signals from the plane to the ground, likely by way of a satellite connection. A similar system already exists in Europe. Last week, the European Commission approved passengers’ use of 3G and 4G data from airplanes as well.
