More Connexion By Boeing Modems Ordered

By | August 16, 2004 | Uncategorized

If the orders are an indication of how the Connexion By Boeing service is growing, expect to see more planes next year with the service on board. ViaSat Inc. [VSAT] said the company received a follow-on order for 85 airborne modems from the Connexion By Boeing division of The Boeing Co. [BA]. A ViaSat spokesman told Satellite Today that a plane typically carries only one modem.

With this order, the number of planes flying with Connexion By Boeing service could rise well-above the 200-airplane mark. ViaSat said 150 airborne modems have been delivered to date, and this latest order brings the backlog to more than 100 additional modems.
