In-Flight Wi-Fi Coming to Transoceanic Flights

Gogo

Gogo PR:

Gogo, a leader of in-flight connectivity and a pioneer in wireless in-flight digital entertainment solutions, announced today that it will partner with satellite equipment provider, AeroSat, to bring a Ku-satellite solution to commercial airlines. A Ku-satellite solution will allow Gogo to offer airlines connectivity services that extend beyond the United States, including transoceanic routes, and will serve the needs of some of our airlines partnersin the near-term until Inmarsat’s Global Xpress Ka-satellite service becomes available.

Although I feel somewhat negative about in-flight calling, international wi-fi would be an endlessly welcome addition.
