SpeedCast is a global satellite communications and network service provider. The company has just announced that it has partnered (Week ending August 12) with DH-Intercom to provide broadband connectivity to a 50-vessel fleet.

DH-Intercom (DHI) is a subsidiary of Eutelsat Communications which is based in Germany and provides communications and IT services to the maritime industry.

“Our customer is looking for network connections with higher speed to run more applications and provide better data services to their crew on 50 vessels.” said David Bunting of DHI.

Piers Cunningham of SpeedCast said: “We see an increasing demand for high speed, high-throughput connectivity from the maritime industry. Ship owners need to run more bandwidth-demanding applications on their vessels to improve operational efficiency and provide better crew welfare. We are well poised to answer this growing connectivity demand with our global Ku-band network to services wherever our customers operate.”
