It all began in 1991 at a barbecue joint in Denison, Texas, where company founder Jimmy Ray sketched onto a paper napkin his visionary idea for a telephone system on aircraft.
Through a unique partnership with cellular providers, Gogo began as Aircell, providing analog-based voice communications on private aircraft in North America.
In 2006, Gogo was awarded an exclusive frequency license by the FCC. After securing this spectrum, the company designed, patented, and deployed an uninterrupted cellular-based network across the U.S. to provide broadband Internet services to the aviation market.
In 2008, Gogo made its debut on commercial aircraft, bringing robust Internet access to the skies and transforming the experience for air travelers.
Today, Gogo has more than 2,400 commercial and 6,800 business aircraft equipped with our services across our Air-To-Ground (ATG) and satellite technology platforms. We continue to develop products and services to keep passengers productive, informed and entertained while they're in the air.
Gogo uses a variety of advanced technologies to keep people connected in air. As a company, Gogo is technology agnostic – whether it’s our exclusive Air-To-Ground (ATG) system or satellite-based solution.
There’s no one-solution-fits-all approach. Just as certain routes are better served by certain aircraft types, the technology that’s ideal for one aircraft may not be the best option for another. That’s why Gogo offers a suite of technologies — so our airline partners can find the right solution for their fleet, their passengers, and their future.
2Ku: This revolutionary solution leverages next-generation spot-beam satellites to deliver unprecedented performance and enhanced equatorial coverage. 2Ku will have two low-profile, high efficiency Ku-band satellite antennas. The new technology will deliver peak speeds to the aircraft of more than 70 Mbps. 2Ku will be available in the second half of 2015.
Business Aviation Technologies: For the business aviation market, Gogo currently offers three different in-flight technologies, including Iridium Satellite, Inmarsat SwiftBroadband (satellite), Gogo Biz™ (ATG) and recently announced ATG-4 for business aviation.
I have been working at Gogo full-time (More than 5 years)
Excellent technology to work with! Excellent and knowledge teams to work with!
Hours are long sometime. Not enough lead time between projects. Everything is priority! I guess that can be any job.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gogo (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.
There was a half hour phone screen with human resources and then there was a half hour phone screen with hiring manager. I have not heard anything else back from the company.
