In-flight connectivity provider Gogo has announced that the company has received the final Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the FAA required to launch Gogo's 2Ku next generation satellite connectivity service.

The technology is currently installed on Gogo's 737-500 test plane and is now cleared for in-flight testing. Gogo expects to launch commercial service of its 2Ku technology later this year.

2Ku is expected to deliver peak speeds of more than 70 Mbps to the aircraft, which is more than 20 times the bandwidth provided by Gogo's first generation Air to Ground solution in the U.S. 

Seven commercial airlines have signed up for either a trial or fleet deployment of 2Ku covering more than 500 commercial aircraft. Gogo expects to launch commercial service later this year and begin rapid installation of the backlog of 500 aircraft in 2016.
