DSC_0436 2 (1)Aeromexico announced that it plans to offer Gogo’s high-speed Internet on an additional nine Boeing 737-800NG aircraft.

The carrier will install the Internet provider’s 2Ku satellite technology on the planes, bringing Aeromexico’s total number of planes equipped with the service to 29. The airline currently offers the connectivity on 20 of its aircraft.

The additional aircraft are expected to be outfitted with the 2Ku technology by the end of this year.

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.
