Roaming with GO mobile's new In-flight service
In-flight Roaming is a new service in which some airlines allow mobile phones to be used in certain flights.
How does In Flight Mobile Roaming work?
An aircraft installed with a mobile phone transmitter can relay calls to and from mobile phones and these calls are routed by satellites. The satellites route the calls to and from terrestrial networks, thus connecting the mobile calls to telecom networks on the ground.
How do I use the In-flight service?
As is currently, you will be instructed by the crew on the ground to ensure that your phones are switched off before departure. GO mobile customers will only be able to use the service when the aircraft has reached a cruising altitude. You will then be informed that the use of mobile phones is permitted.
