Gogo gains required license for in-flight Wi-Fi in Canada

Canadian service focusing on existing Gogo for rollout

In-flight Wi-Fi provider Gogo has been given approval to offer its service in Canada. Industry Canada has issued a subordinate license to the company, allowing it to serve flights using its air-to-ground radio-based technology. Both internal flights and those crossing the border into the US will get access.

Gogo plans to start cell site construction in the fourth quarter, with the aim of launching Canadian service by the end of 2013. It will initially focus on routes crossed by US and Canadian commercial airlines already using Gogo, as well as aircraft employing Aircell's Gogo Biz service.

In June, Gogo announced that it would be putting Wi-Fi onto over 150 aircraft in Delta's international fleet. Flights outside the US will mainly use Ku-band satellite signals for connectivity instead of depending on base-station connections. [via Engadget]
