FleetBroadband gives you faster, more cost-effective access to data services. Besides constant, real-time weather and ECDIS updates, you can use more complex applications with confidence. Its simultaneous voice and data capability means that operational systems can be running online and you can still access email, your intranet and make voice calls – all via a single terminal. So the Captain can get on with managing the ship, while the crew are calling or emailing home.
FleetBroadband ensures you are never out of touch, wherever you sail. The service is accessible globally except for the extreme Polar Regions. You can depend on Inmarsat, whatever the weather. We provide the toughest communications links in the business, with average network availability exceeding 99.99 per cent. FleetBroadband terminals are designed specifically for use within the marine environment and are rigorously tested to our exacting standards. The whole system is supported by our worldwide network of partners.
