Who Uses Fleet Xpress?
Anyone who operates a vessel that needs access to high-speed satellite Internet data and wants a single, global network with (Advantages based on coverage, flexible plans)
Typical customers operate Passenger Vessels, Cargo Ships, Superyachts, or Offshore Support Vessels (OSV): Fleet Xpress is good for anyone who needs fast, reliable marine Internet service with predictable but flexible pricing.
Fleet Xpress for Superyachts
Stay connected on board your yacht with new levels of flexibility and guaranteed performance wherever you go. Guaranteed global bandwidth provides connectivity in all conditions and locations, making it easier to deliver a great guest experience and run an efficient yacht. Seasonal flexibility is assured via free and fast up- and downgrades of subscription plans: high bandwidth during peak demand and up to 6-months suspension to fulfil service standby in off-season periods. With controlled costs and the freedom to take your yacht anywhere – Fleet Xpress is powering a yachting data revolution.
Fleet Xpress for Offshore Support Vessels
The Fleet Xpress for Offshore Vessels (OSV) service recognizes that connectivity needs on board OSVs change frequently and that swings in data usage are likely to be more pronounced than for conventional cargo ships, which is why it offers free upgrades and downgrades in service levels during the 36-month contract period.
Fleet Xpress for Commercial Fishing
Guaranteed global bandwidth ensures that fishing vessel owners and operators can send catch reports and other regulatory requirements to shore, improve sales and purchase negotiations with real time information exchange, and can enhance vessel efficiency by allowing on-board equipment monitoring. This allows them to run their businesses more effectively whilst also ensuring that crew welfare is taken care of.
Fleet Xpress Alternatives
Fleet Xpress is often the best choice for vessels looking for reliable global satellite Internet speeds, but like any service, Fleet Xpress is not for everyone. Vessels that are too small to install a 60cm dome can consider Inmarsat Fleet One or FleetBroadband. Vessels who don’t need high-speed service might consider lower-bandwidth options like Inmarsat FleetOne, FleetBroadband. Fleet Xpress covers virtually all of the globe, but vessels who spend the majority of their time in polar waters north or south of 70 degrees might consider other options.
