Friday 13 November 2015 | 10:32 CET | News
Gogo unveiled a new satellite technology during a series of flights on its Boeing 737 aircraft. Called 2Ku, the technology is expected to be launched commercially in the coming months. As part of the flight testing of 2Ku, Gogo simultaneously streamed videos on more than 40 devices while providing browsing on additional devices. The technology also benefits from the global coverage and redundancy of the more than 180 satellites in the Ku-band. Since Gogo announced 2Ku, 8 airlines representing more than 550 aircraft adopted the technology for fleet deployment or a trial of the service.
