JetBlue won't 'police' in-flight voice calls over Wi-Fi

Stephen Lawson | Dec. 16, 2013
The airline says its Fly-Fi service will be able to carry VoIP and complaints will be handled case by case.

Fly-Fi offers an average downstream speed of about 12Mbps, but its upstream speed is 1Mbps or less, which should help to discourage two-way voice calling, Johnston said.

The airline expects to deploy the system throughout its main fleet of Airbus A320 planes by the end of next year. It's powered by JetBlue's Live TV subsidiary and links planes to the Internet via satellite.
