What does a satellite connectivity company do with 10 gigabits/second of new capacity? “Deliver it to customers” was an easy answer for Anuvu’s EVP Connectivity Mike Pigott. But how that capacity gets allocated, and what it means for the company’s evolution of mobile connectivity is rather more complex.
Anuvu’s appetite for bandwidth continues to grow. The company secured a deal with Telesat for 10 gigabits/second of Ka-band capacity to boost mobility connection options.
Travelers can now add “Southwest Airlines WiFi” to their Venmo payment comments and really mean it. The airline, in partnership with in-flight WiFi provider Anuvu, added the payment option to its on board portal in recent weeks.
