Reinbek near Hamburg, 17. December 2014: One of the very well known tanker vessels owner in Germany, John T. Essberger, has chosen shipznet as one of its maritime ship-shore communication solutions.
shipznet, a revolutionary development of bobz GmbH, is the only high speed mobile network service in merchant shipping, that offers a world-wide monthly flat rate near-shore and in harbors, without any additional roaming costs.
shipznet consists of a very small above-deck unit with two antennas and guarantees easy installation. The below-deck unit serves as router and as the the power supply for the above deck unit. shipznet complements either Fleetbroadband, regarding high volume costs, or Iridium, regarding low transfer rates.
John T. Essberger chose shipznet because of the company´s expertise on maritime communication and the attractive price for this solution.
However, shipznet is also an ideal stand alone solution. Especially the new feature “crew solution” makes shipznet interesting for shipping companies since offering the crew a better and especially less expensive way of communication.

Essberger.“We are very proud, that such a well known shipping company as John T. Essberger has decided to use our innovative shipznet ” says Claudia Bobzin, Managing Director of bobz GmbH.
