Exclusive: AT&T no longer interested in inflight connectivity

Armstrong_1200x148

AT&T has opted not to jump into the inflight connectivity game after all, RGN can reveal. AT&T – which had planned to launch a 4G LTE air-to-ground (ATG)-based service in the US – did an evaluation of the space, and deemed inflight connectivity to be too risky.

“As AT&T explores opportunities for future growth and diversification, expanding our international presence has remained an area of interest. On Friday we announced our intent to acquire Mexico wireless company Iusacell. After a thorough review of our investment portfolio, the company decided to no longer pursue entry into the Inflight Connectivity industry.  We are focusing our capital on transformative investments, such as international and video,” AT&T tells RGN.

Until last Friday, the company’s connectivity and IFE ambitions had been significant.

    I expected to see a lot of things after reading the tag line “freakyguy666”, but not “Given the market impact potential … Etc.”

    (snicker) Doesn’t anyone else find this embarrassing? AT&T comes into the market all gung-ho, criticizing the incumbents and promising in print to show everyone how it should be done and then leaves with a very quiet, in effect : “never mind, we – er – well, we em, err, we decided err, to do something else”

    Bravo! What a show of force and vision. Thanks AT&T and a giant raspberry to you for your time wasting. Just a thought, but would your time be better spent getting your cell phone and data networks to work half as well as Verizon’s? Don’t make me come over there and show you how it should be done 🙂

    Oh, BTW please don’t come back and do this again when you change your mind – again.
