Delta Completes Wi-Fi Deployment on International Fleet
The Wi-Fi service is provided by Gogo’s 2Ku-Ban satellite technology. The 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.
Delta’s Wi-Fi-equipped international fleet includes Boeing 747s, 777s, 767s, 757-200s, and Airbus A330s.
The carrier first began installing the service on its domestic aircraft in 2008, and begin outfitting its international fleet in 2012.
