United to Upgrade P.S. Fleet with Faster Gogo Wi-Fi
United Airlines and Gogo will upgrade in-flight Internet service on the carrier’s p.s. (Premium Service) fleet with faster, ATG-4 connectivity.
Gogo will begin installing the ATG-4 technology early next year.
ATG-4 will increase peak Internet speeds on the aircraft from up to 3.1 Mbps to up to 9.8 Mbps. The new technology achieves these speeds through the use of an additional directional antenna, a dual modem, and EV-DO Rev. B technology.
United’s p.s. sub-fleet is comprised of 13 Boeing 757-200 aircraft that fly between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and either Los Angeles or San Francisco. The aircraft offer three classes of service, First, Business, and Economy Plus.
Last August, United announced plans to convert the p.s. fleet to a two-class configuration, with new lie-flat business-class seats and new Economy Plus seating.
