FCC Sets Airwaves Sale For Internet On Planes

Sat Jan 14, 2006 1:16 am

Move could give cash-strapped carriers new way to generate revenue

"Reuters/WASHINGTON - U.S. regulators plan to sell airwaves starting May 10 to provide communications services like high-speed Internet to U.S. air travelers."

I don't quite understand this... what's meant exactly with "airwaves"? The radio waves from the plane to the satellites/ground stations, or *inside* the airplane? Although I doubt the FCC regulates what happens inside an airplane... or am I wrong?
