Definitely the new standards might impose required norms for the electronic equipments to comply with. May be, for the new aircrafts it is okay as the aviation electronics on board must have been certified to latest standard. But what about the aircrafts existing in the fleets? Competition might drive the airlines to upgrade the older planes with the broadband facilities as well. What about the on-board electronics on these older planes...will those be upgraded as well…won’t there be any misses?

Passengers typically are not allowed to turn on their cell phone while the plane is in flight to destination. Is this restriction relieved? WiFi uses ISM band. Does it cause any interference to air-ground communication? Is there any certification required by FAA for devices being used in flight?
