Gogo goes international, to provide Japan Airlines domestic in-flight WiFi

Gogo goes international, to provide Japan Airlines domestic inflight WiFi

Gogo, the company known for providing barely usable internet at exorbitant prices on United States domestic and (some) international flights, is partnering with Japan Airlines to bring its service abroad. A small expansion to be sure, but a notable one: it marks Gogo’s first expansion of service to a foreign country.

The partnership will provide WiFi to 77 planes in Japan, and Gogo says it’ll be the faster Ku-satellite variety. Don’t bust out your WiFi-required devices about JAL flights just yet, though, as the service won’t go live until some time in Summer 2014. And who even knows what the world will look like by then? Maybe Elon Musk’s Hyperloop will be realized and airlines will seem little more than novelty. Probably not, but maybe.
