Broadband service ready to board more corporate jets: From the “Completely Relevant to my Life” department, here’s an article on the booming demand for broadband service on corporate jets.

Only Annapolis, Md.-based Arinc is on the market now with a broadband service for corporate jets. But competition is set to intensify in 2006.

  • Radio equipment maker Rockwell Collins and aviation giant Boeing have teamed to introduce theirs next spring.

  • Inmarsat, a British avionics maker that now has a dial-up-speed Internet service for corporate jets, will roll out a broadband product later in the year.

[…] hardware and installation of the current Inmarsat service can cost up to $400,000. A connection runs about $8 a minute.
