Like I said...

2006 is going to be a fascinating year. All I can say to this story is that you might as well call out the paramedics to Microsoft's campus, because furniture and executive blood pressure will be soaring this week. Also of interest is a white paper I received from Flarion a few minutes ago (not on the website yet, apparently) entitled "Trains, Planes and Automobiles", which discusses the results of several trials of high speed connectivity. Among other facts, there is reference to aviation backhaul with a cell radius of 360km, with 2Mbps downlink connections maintained at speeds above 300kmph. I'd be very surprised if IPWireless didn't also have an aviation solution in the works.
