In-flight Wi-Fi provider Gogo plans to launch a 5G network for business and commercial aircraft in 2021. Gogo will build the new air-to-ground network on top of the company's existing web of towers and use unlicensed spectrum in the 2.4GHz range, the inflight Internet provider said in a statement. Oakleigh Thorne, CEO, said the company expects to launch Gogo 5G at the same time that the terrestrial telecommunications companies are deploying the same generation of technology on the ground -- a first in the inflight connectivity industry. He said Gogo 5G is “the next step in our technology evolution” and is expected to deliver “an unparalleled user experience, pairing high performance with low latency and network-wide redundancy." 5G promises to significantly boost the speed, coverage and responsiveness of wireless networks, according to the statement. It can run between 10 and 100 times faster than the typical cellular connection today and will boost how fast a device will connect to the network with speeds as quick as a millisecond to start a download or upload.
