Radio Holland agrees shipznet partner deal

Radio Holland has announced a partnership agreement with bobz GmbH of Hamburg, that will see the German company’s shipznet mobile network service for merchant shipping offered as part of the Radio Holland portfolio.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}shipznet provides a world-wide monthly flat rate connection to GSM networks near-shore and in harbours, without additional roaming costs, and will be used to complement Radio Holland’s range of satellite communication products.

“With the shipznet solution our customers are able to switch from satellite communication to the mobile network, up to 30km from the coast. The main benefits for our customers are the substantially higher speed compared to current satellite communication and the cost savings compared to FleetBroadband,” said Armin Holkers, business line manager ship to shore, Radio Holland.

A shipznet crew solution is also available, allowing those on board to connect to the system by using vouchers to save on roaming costs on their own GSM devices. When the voucher is used up it can be recharged with the shipping company or the Master.

“With Radio Holland, we have connected to a partner who is a well-known global services company. We are convinced that this partnership is a big step to market shipznet successfully worldwide,” said Claudia Bobzin, managing director of bobz GmbH.

“Communication demands of today’s shipping industry have increased immensely. shipznet is a world-wide solution for communication and supports shipping companies with reducing their communication costs.”{/mprestriction}
