(ECNS) -- Enjoying a live webcast on the plane is no longer just a dream in China, as trial in-flight Wi-Fi service was provided on Wednesday for passengers on two Air China flights, cnr.cn reported.

The new service enabled passengers on board the flights linking Beijing and Chengdu to surf the Internet, check e-mails, make online trading, and browse micro blogs on their tablet computers or laptops, but not smartphones.

As a technology boasting proprietary intellectual property rights of China, the in-flight broadband Internet access featuring 4G mobile technology can help users enjoy connection speeds of about 30 megabits per second.
