Great news for anyone that travels via U.S. airline companies!
In-flight broadband provider Gogo's 2Ku technology has been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration, opening the door for data speeds up to 70Mbps. The company plans to launch commercial services this year. Seven commercial airlines have signed up for either a trial or fleet deployment of 2Ku, covering more than 500 commercial aircraft, Gogo said without giving names. The aircraft will be upgraded next year. The 70Mbps that 2Ku can deliver is a big improvement over the 3.1Mbps Gogo was able to offer when it got started about five years ago.
