The new network will use a special modem and advanced radiation technology for focusing the power of wireless signal. At the same time, Gogo plans to continue using 3G and 4G networks for data backup.

The company claims that ground-based network technologies have advantages over satellite communications, because they provide significant savings in operation and less delay in data transmission.
