For the fastest satellite internet at sea, you’ll want to choose a high-powered maritime device on either the Iridium or Inmarsat network. Not only do these networks give you almost complete coverage wherever you sail, but they also deliver when it comes to fast, reliable internet. Choosing a proper device on these networks is important, too.
With the Thales VesseLINK and the Intellian C700, both operating on Iridium Certus, you’ll get download speeds over 700 kbps and upload speeds of 352 kbps. For VSAT technology, consider a device operable at 20W BUC, such as the Sailor 900 for reliable, high performance operation no matter the conditions. A device such as the Intellian V100NX, with its ability to easily convert between ku- and ka-band frequencies will deliver maximum speeds without interruption.
