American Airlines To Get Gogo's Higher Speed Wi-Fi Installed On New Aircraft
American Airlines' new Airbus A320 family and Boeing 737 deliveries will arrive with something special: Ku-band satellite support and Gogo's next generation Air to Ground technology - ATG-4. While Gogo's existing service is better than nothing, the jaded among us will no doubt agree that speeds can be sluggish at times. With this, the dual systems will enable the aircraft to provide seamless in-flight internet service on domestic and international flights, and at higher speeds to boot. Installations will occur as the new aircraft are delivered to American beginning in 2013, but who knows if upstarts like ViaSat will have won over the hearts of its rivals by that point.
