    Industry Canada issued Gogo a “subordinate license” today for an air-to-ground radio frequency spectrum that will allow Gogo to provide its airborne high-speed Internet service on commercial and business aircraft flying over Canada. The Canadian network will operate on the same frequency as Gogo’s existing ATG network in the continental U.S., allowing Gogo to provide service within Canada and on cross-border flights between the U.S. and Canada.

    “This license will allow us to offer seamless connectivity service for both our airline partners and business aviation customers operating between the U.S. and Canada,” said Gogo president and CEO Michael Small. “Whether on a commercial or business aircraft, passengers traveling in Canada can soon experience the same technology that has a proven track record of performance and reliability in the U.S.”

    They expect to start putting up cells autumn 2012, with the system fully operational by late 2012.
