Gogo announced that it has added in-flight Internet service for business and commercial flights over Canada.  The first phase of this service went live on Monday.

Once the implementation is complete, Gogo’s current offerings over Canada will include its original air-to-ground (ATG) service as well as  ATG-4, and ground-to-orbit (GTO) will be available.

Gogo’s hybrid GTO service uses both satellites and cellular towers.  It offers speeds of up to six times what current ATG systems are capable of, namely 70 Mpbs to an equipped aircraft.

With the expansion, passengers traveling between the U.S. and Canada will have uninterrupted service when they cross the border.  Gogo is expected to complete the rollout of the service within the first quarter of 2014.
