Telenor Launches New Maritime Communications Service
Telenor Satellite Services announced Tuesday the commercial launch of Telenor Fleet F55, the first high-speed data product available for coastal and regional vessels and large yachts. Telenor plans to commercially launch the third member of its Inmarsat Fleet family, Fleet F33, by the end of November. The two new services provide small to medium-sized vessels with mobile voice, data and fax services. Telenor said it was among the first Inmarsat service providers to commercially offer Fleet F77 service in April 2002.
