MOL Ship Mgmt upgrades to FleetBroadband 6GB plan

MOL Ship Mgmt upgrades to FleetBroadband 6GB plan
MOL Ship Management has upgraded its internet plan for its vessels to Inmarsat's FleetBroadband 6-gigabyte plan. It has commenced migrating over 100 vessels to the higher data plan for the primary purpose of enhancing both crew welfare and business operations, Inmarsat said in an announcement.

The decision to upgrade was made following a trial period on several selected vessels. MOL Ship Management has deployed Inmarsat services on its vessel fleet for more than 10 years and has been using FleetBroadband since April 2010, gradually increasing its usage since the initial installation.

"Any FleetBroadband user can quickly and easily upgrade their plans without additional capital investment and data usage can be shared across vessels” said Frank Coles, president of Inmarsat Maritime. “MOL’s decision to upgrade its Inmarsat usage yet again is a great testament to the quality, capability and value of FleetBroadband and its ability to enhance both onboard quality of life and operations.”

The company intends to offer its crew free email,chatting and Internet browsing through AmosConnect Crew, an all-in-one communications solution for crew members at sea.
