Gogo Upgrades In-Flight Internet Service
Gogo has launched ATG-4, its next generation connectivity technology, on Delta, US Airways, and Virgin America. The service is expected to allow more passengers to access the Internet by increasing capacity to the aircraft.
Gogo has already installed the upgraded service on over 25 domestic aircraft. It plans to launch offer its ATG-4 service on American Airlines flights, as well as United Airlines’ p.s. (premium service) fleet in 2013.
Gogo’s ATG-4 technology delivers a top speed of 9.8 Mbps to the aircraft, more than three times the current speed of 3.1 Mbps. The technology includes additional directional antennas, dual modems on each aircraft, and a software upgrade. The upgrade can typically be installed on an aircraft overnight.
