United & gogo announced today that the p.s. fleet is going to receive an upgrade to the bandwidth available in-flight. The p.s. fleet will be receiving the ATG-4 system (EVDO-B) starting in early 2013; it will allow for up to 9.8 Mbit of speed to the aircraft, more than 3x the current top speed. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-rele...4-in-air-connectivity-solution-163177256.html http://boardingarea.com/blogs/thewa...des-coming-to-uniteds-p-s-in-flight-internet/ The big surprise here is that gogo is still in the mix at all. They'll be the third provider (Panasonic, LiveTV) that United will have on their planes. It also means that the odds of p.s. planes being used on certain TATL routes with higher C demand (oft-rumored) are dramatically lower as the ATG system won't work overseas. All in all, quite an interesting development.
