GoGo To Upgrade In-Flight Wi-Fi


Last month American Airlines filed a lawsuit against inflight Wi-Fi provider GoGo alleging that the Wi-Fi speeds offered by GoGo were unacceptably slow. American has since dropped their lawsuit, but it seems like they were still victorious as, according to this Consumerist article, GoGo has announced it will upgrade its systems to offer faster connections for customers flying with its contracted airlines.

Among the enhancement to be implemented, GoGo will upgrade the satellite modem used with its 2Ku and Ku satellite technologies to increase service to Internet users on planes. The upgraded modem is supposed to be available sometime in 2017. Internet speeds will be increased up to 400 Mbps. For reference, I believe current speeds are under 100 Mbps, so the enhancements will truly be significant.
