Gogo 5G to offer peak speeds up to 80 mbps
Gogo 5G's speeds are based on modelling of eight commonly travelled city pairs and confirmed by recent flight testing of it's airborne and ground-station antennas.

Gogo Business Aviation expects Gogo 5G to deliver up to 25 mbps on average with peak speeds in the 75-80 mbps range.

The speeds are based on modelling of eight commonly travelled city pairs, including New York, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas, and confirmed by recent flight testing of Gogo's airborne and ground-station antennas. Gogo says its 5G will be a fast and easy upgrade for aircraft installed with Avance L5.

“A recent survey by The Boston Consulting Group reported that Gogo Avance L5 customers experienced 2-7+ mbps speeds, and with 5G onboard those speeds will increase dramatically,” says Sergio Aguirre, president of Gogo Business Aviation. “We are confident that with our new higher speeds and inherent low latency, 5G will deliver the best connectivity experience in business aviation.

“Our 5G network deployment has begun, and we're on schedule for launch in the second half of 2022. We're deep into system qualification and certification, we're developing a comprehensive STC portfolio and last week we announced our launch customer as Jet Edge,” Aguirre adds.

The Avance speeds listed are based on interviews with more than 70 Gogo customers by The Boston Consulting Group. Customers report regularly using video-intense applications like Zoom, Teams and social media.
