GoGo Announces Faster Inflight Hybrid Wifi Services

Gogo unveils new In-flight Internet Technology

Whether you're a business traveler criss-crossing the country to attend your next business meeting or jetting away for a girlfriend's getaway at your favorite spa, the power of connectivity while in the air is a powerful alure - especailly if staying connected while traveling is a must.

About 5 years ago, GoGo introduced the first glimpses of in-flight internet connectivity to the domestic American traveler, and evolved their offering into a solid air-to-ground distribution network to open up the domestic american airways for travelers looking to keep connected.

Today, at their webcast in Annaheim, California, GoGo announced their newest in-flight connectivity solution, introducing a superior ground-to-orbit method to transmit the internet signal while in-flight at up to 60 megabits per second (compare your household broadband transmits at 15-25 megabits per second). That’s 20 times the speed growth of their current GoGo's in-flight web at high speed service level. Combining their already strong air-to-ground service with this satellite network will place them well ahead of any competition.

Unfortunately GoGo's connectivity solution won't launch mid-2014, starting with the domestic Virgin Airlines fleet. But with high demand across the other carriers, this service should grow rapidly as a high-speed in-flight internet and digital entertainment offering.

Now only if they expanded their in-flight wifi service offering to Canada and abroad … maybe that’s the next quest – global in-flight internet connectivity. We can only hope GoGo will continue to go where no wifi has gone before.

Have you tried GoGo's in-flight wifi service when you've flown? What did you think of the ability to connect from 30,000 feet? We'd love to hear. Connect with us on Facebook or Twitter.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
