Tips to enhance your satellite Wi-Fi experience
When using free texting, turn your phone to silent or vibrate. Use headphones when listening to music or watching movies.
Mother Nature may have her way.
While you’ll now be able to use the system once your flight departs the gate, you may notice slower internet speeds during torrential rainstorms, while the aircraft is banking, or if there’s snow or ice on top of the plane. Also, service will be spotty north of the Arctic Circle, and will pause while flying over a small part of New Mexico and while the aircraft is being deiced.
Plan your uploads.
Our satellite internet system is speedy at downloading documents, but you may notice a delay with uploads. We recommend limiting the movement or uploading of large documents (those over 10 MB).
