Marlink will equip 30 Wilhelmsen Ship Management vessels with Sealink, a global maritime VSAT turnkey solution, offering "always-on" Internet access and Local Area Network (LAN) communications at a fixed monthly price.  Sealink also provides PSTN telephone lines with standard fixed per-minute

Crew has access to always-on, free Internet for applications such as web browsing, e-mail exchange and net-banking, as well as multiple telephone lines for crew calling services. For business and administrative purposes, LAN-LAN data communications on board are in place via Sealink, as are multiple direct dial telephone lines.
