NEW YORK (Reuters) - Gogo Inc, a major provider of in-flight internet to airlines, plans to announce a faster version of its air-to-ground system for business and commercial aircraft, chief operating officer John Wade said on Wednesday.

The new system, being rolled out over the next 18 months, uses increased radio spectrum to provide speeds of 100 megabits per second, about 10 times more than Gogo's existing system, Wade said in an interview.
