Small Vessels

Bringing high-speed broadband to small vessels

Delivering broadband at sea to smaller vessels has traditionally been costly and complex, preventing ship owners from realising their digitalisation initiatives. With VSAT terminals optimised for limited space, our end-to-end managed satellite broadband service, delivered by our maritime service provider partners, enables ships of all sizes to improve safety, efficiency, and profitability.
