Gogo Business Aviation expands 5G coverage to Canada


Gogo Business Aviation has announced the expansion of its Gogo 5G network into Canada, aimed at providing additional coverage to business aviation operators in North America.

The service is expected to launch commercially in the fourth quarter of this year, with the completion of the network expansion into Canada set for introduction in 2024.

Building on our nationwide network in the contiguous US, expanding into Canada will allow our customers to realise enhanced inflight connectivity in more destinations and routes where they fly,” said Sergio Aguirre, president and chief operating officer, Gogo Business Aviation. “We have been planning for this and I know our network deployment and field operations teams are ready to execute.”

Gogo 5G uses the firm’s software based AVANCE platform system, which allows for an easy upgrade path to Gogo 5G and Gogo’s global Low Earth Orbit (LEO) solution in the future. Gogo 5G is expected to deliver 25Mbps on average, with peak speeds in the 75-80 Mbps range.
