Phones on Planes
The EU is making a major change to its flights which will allow passengers to use 5G whilst travelling.
Phone calls and surfing the internet will be allowed on EU flights as of next summer, it has been announced.
Airlines that operate within the European Union will soon be able to offer 5G to their passengers, allowing them to make calls, stream music and chat over social media.
The frequencies for in-flight 5G (5 GHz) are different from those necessary for flying a plane (4.2 to 4.4 GHz), meaning there is essentially no risk of the pilot's transmissions being interrupted.
It's unclear at the moment whether UK airlines will adopt this service.
