Gogo hits half-way mark on 5G network construction
When finished, Gogo's 5G network will deliver high throughput with very low latency. It is working with Duncan Aviation to complete the first-article STC for onboard 5G hardware, and STCs for more than 30 aircraft models.

Gogo Business Aviation's nationwide US 5G network construction is halfway to completion with the 75th site now online. Gogo 5G remains on budget and on schedule to launch in the second half of 2022.

“Getting to the 50 per cent mark for our 150-tower 5G nationwide network in a matter of months is an incredible accomplishment by our team,” says vice president of network operations Mike Rupert. “We have a team of network experts that has been working hard to bring the 5G network to life, building sites across the country, and that work will continue into the fall.”

Gogo has been regularly updating the market on its 5G network build progress with a deployment map, available on its website.

“We've been testing our network and we're pleased with the results we're seeing,” says senior vice president of customer operations Dave Glenn. “Gogo 5G is going to deliver on everything we've promised to the market.”

Gogo 5G is expected to deliver ~25 Mbps on average with peak speeds in the 75-80 Mbps range, and has been designed to deliver high throughput with very low latency to address the increasing demand for data-heavy interactive services like video conferencing.

Gogo's Avance platform, with its multi-bearer capability and software-centric design, allows customers to future-proof their inflight connectivity investments, with easy upgrade paths to both Gogo 5G and to Gogo's global low-earth orbit (LEO) satellite-based product in the future.

Gogo is working with Duncan Aviation to complete the first-article STC for the onboard 5G system hardware, along with STCs that will cover more than 30 aircraft models. Additional STCs are being developed by several other Gogo authorised dealers and at the factory by business aviation aircraft manufacturers.
