Maxcraft Avionics is attending the Aircraft Electronics Association annual convention in Orlando, Florida where earlier today, Gogo announced a plan to expand their network of 5G ground stations into Canada, making installing a Gogo 5G connectivity solution an even more attractive option to Canadian operators.
ORLANDO (AEA, Booth 906) – Gogo Business Aviation (NASDAQ: GOGO) announced today it will expand its Gogo 5G network into Canada, providing additional coverage to business aviation operators in North America.
“Building on our nationwide network in the contiguous United States, expanding into Canada will allow our customers to realize enhanced inflight connectivity in more destinations and routes where they fly,” said Sergio Aguirre, Gogo’s president and chief operating officer. “We have been planning for this and I know our network deployment and field operations teams are ready to execute.”
Gogo 5G is expected to deliver ~25 Mbps on average, with peak speeds in the 75-80 Mbps range, placing power in the passenger’s hand to use data-heavy interactive services like video conferencing, live TV, and gaming with lower latency and higher throughput.
Aligning with Gogo’s software-centric approach to technology design, Gogo 5G leverages Gogo’s best-selling AVANCE platform system with its multi-bearer capability, allowing customers to realize their inflight connectivity investments now, while establishing an easy upgrade path to Gogo 5G and Gogo’s global Low Earth Orbit (LEO) solution in the future.
Following the successful critical design review of the 5G chip earlier this year, Gogo 5G service is expected to launch commercially in the fourth quarter of 2023, with completion of the network expansion into Canada in 2024.
Customers interested in experiencing the first 5G network exclusively for business aviation can equip their aircraft with AVANCE L5 and 5G provisions, available for install today, with significant savings offered through the company’s First To Fly promotion.
