United Airlines announced plans to offer in-flight Wi-Fi service on its two-cabin regional jet fleet.  The service will be provided by Gogo, which will offer its faster ATG-4 product.

The two companies plan to begin installing the equipment necessary to provide the service later this year on over 200 aircraft.  ATG-4 is roughly three times as fast as the original Gogo service, launched in 2008.

United and Gogo will also offer in-flight entertainment on two-cabin regional jets, streaming movies and television shows to passenger-provided Wi-Fi-enabled devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

The Chicago-based airline currently offers Gogo in-flight Internet on its 757 p.s. fleet used on transcon routes connecting New York with San Francisco and Los Angeles, and also offers Wi-Fi service on various other aircraft including all of its Airbus A319s and 320s and some of its Boeing 777 and 787 Dreamliners.
