Stratos Activates New FleetBroadband Pricing Plan for Small Fleets
[Satellite TODAY 09-16-11] Stratos Global has activated Inmarsat’s new FleetBroadband Large Money bundle for single-vessel operators and fleets with fewer than 10 vessels, Stratos announced Sept. 15.
Stratos said it is the first Inmarsat distribution partner to launch the bundle, which aims to offer high-performance global coverage at speeds up to 432kbps, as well as Stratos Advantage value-added services at a reduced monthly rate. The packages include monthly data-connectivity plans as large as 5GB, in addition to reduced rates for voice calls.
“The first FleetBroadband Large Money bundle was activated by Stratos Channel Partner e3 Systems (e3) for one of the largest private sailing yachts built by Royal Huisman in Holland,” Stratos said in an announcement. “The new plans meet the increasing data requirements of yachts and other vessels. The plans provide a high level of monthly bandwidth for email, web browsing, social networking, GSM and other popular applications. With these plans, FleetBroadband is available on terminals as small as 25 centimeters.”
