Gogo Business Aviation’s nationwide 5G network construction is now at the halfway mark and is set to launch on schedule in the second half of the year.
That news came from Gogo on Friday, with the company saying its 75th site is now online.
The company says Gogo 5G is expected to deliver around 25 Mbps on average with peak speeds in the 75-80 Mbps range, and it has been designed to deliver high throughput with very low latency to address data-heavy interactive services like video conferencing.
“We’ve been testing our network and we’re pleased with the results we’re seeing,” said Dave Glenn, Gogo senior vice president of customer operations. “Gogo 5G is going to deliver on everything we’ve promised to the market.”
“Getting to the 50% mark for our 150-tower 5G nationwide network in a matter of months is an incredible accomplishment by our team,” said Mike Rupert, vice president of network operations for Gogo Business Aviation. “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.”
