Speedcast partners with Tampnet in Gulf of Mexico

Speedcast has signed a reseller agreement with Tampnet for 4G/LTE services in the Gulf of Mexico, the first service provider to partner with Tampnet for its high capacity offshore network in the region.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Tampnet announced in March that it has reached 25 per cent of its planned coverage for the Gulf of Mexico. Upon completion at the end of 2018, Tampnet will have a low latency, high capacity fibre and microwave network made up of more than 60 base stations that it estimates will cover 98 per cent of all manned offshore assets.

Tampnet currently owns a similarly designed offshore low-latency network in the North Sea which has been in operation since 2001. Offshore LTE has been available in the North Sea since 2013.   

“Speedcast has been a partner of Tampnet in the North Sea for 15 years and we’ve seen first-hand the value that they bring to offshore communications,” said Keith Johnson, SVP energy, Speedcast.

“Their robust, redundant network complements the core communications technologies that we provide to our customers operating in the Gulf of Mexico. Speedcast remains committed to providing innovative services to keep our customers reliably connected and this agreement represents one more step we are taking to ensure we’re delivering the solution that best fits their needs.”{/mprestriction}
