Inmarsat increases ports for installation of Fleet Xpress by five-fold

Inmarsat increases ports for installation of Fleet Xpress by five-fold
Underscoring the demand for satcoms Inmarsat is increasing the number of ports where owners can install Fleet Xpress from six to 33.

Inmarsat said Fleet Xpress installation for a flat fee would now be available at 12 ports in Asia-Pacific, 11 in Europe, Middle East and Africa, and 10 in the Americas with all work undertaken by Inmarsat-certified engineers.

For all vessels that commit to an installation of Fleet Xpress before 31 December this year the flat fee will be $3,000. For companies waiting for upgrades to FleetXpress there will be a 20% fee reduction on FleetBroadband and upgrades to 20GB or 40GB plans.

“The major expansion in installation services and these new incentives signal Inmarsat’s commitment to offer action rather than words in enabling shipping’s early digitalisation,” said Ronald Spithout, president of Inmarsat Maritime.

“The demand for Fleet Xpress connectivity has been huge since the commercial service launch just over a year ago, calling for new installation ports across Asia, Europe and the Americas.”
