Not to the bandwidth used for flight testing, but the AIMS (integrated avionics) system on the 777 has the capability to transmit many flight parameters to the airline in near real time using VHF or Satcom datalink. In fact, the airline can program the system to trigger recording actions on virtually an unlimited number of events.
