Air Canada announced that it plans to offer in-flight Internet on international flights.

The carrier, in partnership with Gogo, will begin installing the company’s 2Ku system on its entire international fleet of wide-body aircraft this fall, beginning with its Boeing 777s.

Gogo’s 2Ku system offers speeds of a minimum of 70 Mbps to the aircraft, seven times faster than Gogo’s fastest air-to-ground network.  It uses two Ku-band connections to send and receive data between the plane and an orbiting satellite.

Air Canada already offers in-flight Internet across its entire fleet of narrow-body aircraft on domestic routes.
