overall sales performance for Fleet services in 2005.
Through its global network of more than 300 service providers, Telenor sales
of Fleet services increased by 79 percent over the past 12 months.
In accepting the award from Inmarsat, Telenor Vice President for Sales
Anders Kallerud credited the marked growth of maritime sales to the
marketing and sales efforts of Telenor's network of service providers. "It
is the hard work and exceptional customer care offered by our service
providers to their maritime customers that has led to this record increase
of Telenor Fleet sales," Kallerud said.
The Inmarsat Fleet family of services via Telenor provides high-quality
mobile voice and flexible data communications services, e-mail and secure
Internet access for the maritime industry. Fleet services are designed for
