Gogo hit a major milestone by installing its 2000th commercial aircraft with its in-flight Internet service.
Out of the 2,000 aircraft installed with Gogo's in-flight Internet service, more than 300 have now been equipped with the company's next generation service – ATG-4 – that increases peak bandwidth to the aircraft by more than three times Gogo's original service. The company expects to have more than 500 Gogo equipped aircraft outfitted with ATG-4 by the end of this year.
- Earlier this month, Gogo announced plans to deploy a proprietary, hybrid Ground-to-Orbit architecture by the second half of next year that would combine existing satellite technologies with its Air to Ground (ATG) cellular network. The technology will use satellite for receive only (transmission to the plane) and Gogo's Air to Ground network for the return link (transmission to the ground). Gogo will be utilizing a Ku antenna developed specifically for receive only functionality.
