In a world of accelerating Internet and Wi-Fi costs, Satcom1 is putting on the brakes. For a long time, said the Danish satellite systems provider (Booth No. 1891), owners and operators have been “immensely bothered” by the fact that they have to spend an excessive amount of additional man-hours tracking months of SwiftBroadband Internet usage on board the aircraft in order to bill the charter customer. The process, the company added, has led to additional expenses for both the financial as well as operations departments.
