Gogo will build the 5G network on its existing infrastructure of around 250 towers and will use unlicensed spectrum in the 2.4GHz range.

"We expect to launch Gogo 5G at the same time as the terrestrial telecommunications companies are deploying the same generation of technology on the ground – a first in the inflight connectivity industry," said CEO Oakleigh Thorne in a press release.

Gogo's stock closed Tuesday at $5.20 per share.
