With increasing demand for in-flight connectivity, the space around Earth is growing crowded with satellites.

Chances are, most new satellites launched these days are there to support your in-flight Wi-Fi. According to Inmarsat, “[t]he ability to connect to personal devices such as smartphones, laptops and tablets now sits within 40% of passengers’ top three considerations when choosing an airline, behind ticket price (53%) and flight slots (44%).” With more airlines converting their fleet to Wi-Fi, this is one space race that’s bound to soar higher.
