MTN to Supply Carnival Fleet

Monday, March 24, 2003
Maritime Telecommunications Network (MTN) has signed an agreement with Carnival Cruise Lines to provide complete wireless technology to its entire fleet of eighteen vessels. As a result of the agreement MTN will provide wireless Internet capabilities to Carnival’s entire fleet, in addition to the communications service and Internet connections for Carnival guests and crew that MTN already provides. MTN said that the process of equipping Carnival’s fleet with the new WiFi technology would be completed shortly. With MTN’s wireless remote technology capabilities at sea, guests and crew can connect with the World Wide Web and pursue a complete range of Internet activities, enjoying the convenience of the Internet just as if they were in a land-based hotel. Carnival guests will be able to access the Internet from various locations throughout the ship. Their own personal laptops can quickly and easily become Internet stations with the installation of a non-intrusive wireless radio card.
