INMARSAT 5-F4 is a geostationary satellite designed to beam Internet and data transmission capacity to airline passengers, maritime crews and military personnel. The satellite is the fourth member of Inmarsat's broadband communications fleet, a $1.6 billion initiative named Global Xpress conceived to connect aircraft, ships at sea, and mobile users on land through an umbrella of worldwide Ka-band beams. Each Inmarsat 5-series Global Xpress satellite carries 89 fixed and six steerable spot beams in Ka-band. The company's earlier satellites broadcast in L-band, but Inmarsat switched to Ka-band for the Global Xpress system, offering improved downlink communications speeds to 50 megabits per second, with up to 5 megabits per second on the uplink side.
