Buzz Marine launches the Hubba

Buzz Marine has launched a new device, a free-standing mobile unit which, like its existing HubbaX unit, provides on-board 3G broadband reception up to 20 miles offshore.

Unlike the water-resistant HubbaX, the new Hubba cannot be installed on deck. Instead, the free-standing unit can be located inside to provide Wi-Fi broadband capabilities.

The Hubba uses aerial technology and 3G networks via an internal SIM card. It can provide broadband connection up to 20 miles offshore, continually seeking the best signal.

Buzz Marine says that it has typical download speeds of 7 Mbps and uploads of 1Mbps. The unit is powered by the vessel’s 12v system or a standard mains power point with the 12v DC powerpack.

Steve Smith, managing director of Buzz Marine, said: “Once in position there is no set up required, just plug in and the unit will search and lock on to the best available signal.”

“With four built-in antennae it is four times more powerful than a built-in laptop or iPad connection. It’s simple to add on the telephony service too, ensuring the connection is made the most of.”

Buzz Marine says that the Hubba range is designed to take advantage of upgraded transmitters as they come online. Prices start from £325 plus VAT.
