OmniAccess expands coverage

VSAT provider OmniAccess reports that it has expanded its network coverage in the remote French Polynesian islands in the Pacific Ocean.

As a result, for the first time vessels travelling in the region can use its OmniAccess BroadBEAM ULTRA VSAT service.

The news follows the company’s investment into the opening of a high-capacity network on the Intelsat 18 satellite that first became operational in November 2011. This provides the capacity to offer network services via the Ku-band coverage over French Polynesia.

Connection speeds of up to 20Mbps can now be achieved in the region via the ULTRA service following the coverage extension.

“Our new network on the unique beam of the Intelsat 18 satellite offers unparalleled coverage with unprecedented power and ideal elevation,” said Carlos Carbajal, managing director of yacht services at OmniAccess.

“It provides a significant improvement to the internet connectivity enjoyed by those in French Polynesia and will revolutionise the internet experience of those cruising in the region.”
