MOL migrates to 6GB plan

Inmarsat has reported that MOL Ship Management has commenced migrating over 100 vessels to its FleetBroadband 6GB plan to enhance both crew welfare and business operations.

The decision was made following a trial period on several selected vessels.

MOL has deployed Inmarsat services on its vessel fleet for more than ten years. Since rolling out FleetBroadband in April 2010, it has progressively increased its usage from 30MB initially to the 200MB plan in 2011 before now moving to the 6GB plan.

The company says that it intends to offer its crew free e-mail, chatting and internet browsing through AmosConnect Crew, an all-in-one communications solution.

“Any FleetBroadband user can quickly and easily upgrade their plans without additional capital investment and data usage can be shared across vessels,” said Frank Coles, president of Inmarsat Maritime.

“MOL’s decision to upgrade its Inmarsat usage yet again is a great testament to the quality, capability and value of FleetBroadband and its ability to enhance both on-board quality of life and operations.”

Inmarsat says that MOL has also expressed interest in becoming an early Global Xpress adopter once the Ka-band service comes online in 2015.
