- Slovak Telekom and TMCZ are testing Internet on Beta, an in‑flight Wi‑Fi service.
Slovak Telekom (ST) and T‑Mobile Czech Republic (TMCZ) are piloting Internet on Beta, an in‑flight Wi‑Fi service. The offering has been made available for passengers travelling within Europe on Austrian Airlines, Eurowings, and Lufthansa flights. The trial, which will run until the end of February 2020, enables ST and TMCZ SIM card holders to access Wi‑Fi with “unlimited” data and time allowances. During the testing phase, the service is free and can be accessed through the My T‑Mobile application. The pilot appears to be a separate endeavour to a Deutsche Telekom European Aviation Network partnership with Inmarsat, which aims to provide in‑flight entertainment and services to enterprise customers such as British Airways (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #84).
