Inmarsat has announced that it has triggered an option to purchase a fourth Inmarsat-5 satellite, under its existing contract with Boeing Satellite Systems International, while also confirming plans to increase prices on its E&E services by nearly half.
Inmarsat has pledged to freeze its FleetBroadband pricing for next year, stating that there will be no price rises on the service up to the end of 2014.
Inmarsat has reported an increase of almost nine per cent in maritime revenues for the first quarter of 2013, compared with the same period last year, partly as a result of the price rises it has introduced on its FleetBroadband and E&E services over the last year.
