Satmodo is an Inmarsat partner offering two main service plans to make satellite broadband communication possible for all sizes of vessels on any budget.
Fleet One Global Coverage
Fleet One Global is a flexible option for a vessel of any size. With one global rate, users can travel anywhere at any time. There is never a worry of paying more while traveling in certain areas. Both prepaid and postpaid options are available.
All of the global coverage options can be de-activated and re-activated at any time making it a great choice for both seasonal and regular use.
Satmodo offers four monthly global service plans as well as six prepaid plans. With ten different options that all provide low airtime rates and require no commitment, global coverage is the connectivity you can rely upon as you sail the world’s seas.
Fleet One Coastal Coverage
Fleet One Coastal is the best choice for recreational sailors and small regional fishing boat operators who only need occasional satellite service. It’s designed for times when these users travel beyond cellular range and need seamless voice and data capabilities. Smaller vessels (under 500 gross tonnages) have the option to utilize the Fleet One Coastal service.
With the coastal service, all land and key coastal areas can connect with both voice and data, whereas out-to-sea communication is limited to voice only. This is an important factor to consider when deciding between the global and coastal options.
For the coastal coverage service, Satmodo offers 11 different options. For those looking to pay monthly, there are 5 separate options to meet the needs of any user. The prepaid options allow near-shore vessel operators to pay for data ahead of time in order to use only what they need. This type of flexible pricing allows all Fleet One users to get the coverage they need for seamless on-boat communication.
- Frustration from an intermittent or completely lost signal
- Too much time waiting on a slow or non-existent data connection
- Risk of incurring roaming charges – which come with a hefty and unexpected price tag
- Loss of a safety net in a time of emergency
The bottom line is that your maritime communication via mobile phone is unreliable at best and completely useless at worst. With the Fleet One service, those traveling by sea can expect:
- An affordable satellite option
- Reliable and seamless coverage whether in both remote sea and land areas
- Voice and data connections you’ve come to expect – call home, update social media, and continue your business as usual
- To never be without connectivity again
One of the most important aspects of utilizing the Fleet One service from Inmarsat is the peace of mind it provides. Customers cite “safety” as one of the number one reasons to have the Fleet One aboard their vessel.
