Signal & Connection
- EVA Wi-Fi is available only when an aircraft is 20,000 feet or higher above ground.
- EVA Wi-Fi is a service enabled by a communication satellite. It will be unavailable in regions not covered by the satellite network (e.g., the Arctic). "
- EVA Wi-Fi is based on satellite transmission; therefore, the status of connection will depend on aircraft location, altitude, weather, and satellite signal strength.
- The service will also be unavailable over the Polar Regions, lasting up to 3.5 hours depending on the season and flight path.
- In order to keep a respectful and quiet cabin environment, VoIP (Voice over IP) calls are prohibited.
- To protect the rights of other passengers, the Wi-Fi service has disabled connection to websites that may contain obscene, indecent, malicious or illegal content.
- Online videos on social media platforms and streaming services such as YouTube or Netflix are accessible with EVA Wi-Fi. However, extended streaming is not recommended as connection speed varies throughout the flight and may cause prolonged buffer time and reduced video quality."
Just like any other public Internet network, the actual speed of EVA Wi-Fi connection depends on the number of users and the satellite signal strength.
Compared to ground-based Wi-Fi networks, the in-flight connection is much more susceptible to weather or location factors. Network disconnection may occur during satellite beam switching or in the flight area where the satellite signal is unavailable or weak.
