    Isn’t Gogo limited to continental US while Row44 can serve overwater areas? Maybe this precursor to Internet availability on international flights where it may be more valuable than on shorter domestic flights

    Theoretically, yes. But it still depends on satellite coverage areas. Similar to the LiveTV systems, where the coverage is from space but only mostly is around the USA Row44 has to be near the mainland USA to work. There are other programs that can work further afield (Lufthansa finally just got FlyNet back in service – http://blog.wandr.me/2010/12/in-flight-internet-coverage-continues-to-spread/) and they also are satellite-based but the current Row44 system won’t really range too far.

    Does Gogo have plans to add satellites that would enable Atlantic and Pacific coverage?
