SeaMobile, Inc., a provider of at-sea communications, connectivity and content services announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Geolink, a pioneer and leading provider of satellite-based broadband communications and networking services with extensive experience serving the European market. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. During the past year, SeaMobile has quickly become the dominant player in at-sea communications services.

Geolink significantly expands and strengthens SeaMobile's presence in the European market.

Geolink utilizes a partnership with the world's leading satellite networks (Inmarsat, Iridium, Eutelsat and Intelsat) and selected Land Earth Stations to provide service to more than 150 countries throughout the world.
