Additional bandwidth near shore

When approaching the shore, onboard communication systems will switch from the (unlimited) VSAT satellite to the mobile network that enables a higher bandwidth. In case of FleetBroandband fleet management will also notice cost savings due to shipznet’s lower monthly subscription fees. Furthermore, shipznet is also an effective standalone solution for near-coast sailing.

Shipznet crew solution

With the shipznet crew solution, buying individual pre-paid SIM cards for each country is no longer necessary. The crew solution of bobz GmbH offers the crew a comfortable way of communicating with family and friends, by using vouchers. When the contingent is used up, it can be recharged with the shipping company or the Master.

With Radio Holland, we have connected to a partner who is a well-known global services company.
