Trust that your crew is safe, healthy and connected wherever they are required to operate in our oceans, ports and docks.
In today’s world, crew members are likely to adopt a ‘bring-your-own-device’ approach when boarding a vessel and use this as their connection to friends and family on the shoreside. However, this method is not very reliable.

We understand that vessel owners and managers do not want the administrative overhead of trying to enable, monitor and, subsequently, charge crew for use of the FleetBroadband voice post-paid service.
There is little, if any, control over the actual time a crew member spends on the telephone and there can be problems defining and chasing users for payment, especially when there are frequent crew changes.
