Gogo has revealed that the first phase of its Canadian air-to-ground (ATG) Wi-Fi network is live in Canada, with the balance of the network expected to go live in the first quarter of 2014.
Gogo claims that the ATG Canadian network will allow the company to offer seamless in-flight internet service between the U.S. and Canada to its airline partners.
The network aims to offer Gogo the ability to deploy a suite of connectivity technologies in Canada that include its original ATG and next generation ATG-4 technologies, as a well as its hybrid ATG and satellite technology called Ground to Orbit (GTO).
"We are bringing our full suite of in-flight technology solutions to Canada, whether that's ATG, satellite, or our hybrid GTO technology," commented Gogo's president and CEO Michael Small. "Coupled with our Ku and Global Xpress Ka satellite solutions, Gogo's Canadian network will allow the company to offer our airline partners a range of technology solutions to meet the needs of each individual airline no matter the size of the aircraft or where that aircraft is flying."
