Inmarsat, provider of global mobile satellite communications services, say more than 30,000 maritime broadband terminals now activated

This milestone was reached with the installation of a FleetBroadband 500(TM) on Olympic Future, a Greek-flagged crude oil tanker, by Inmarsat's distribution partner OTESAT-Maritel.

We have now seen more than 4,000 terminals added to our FleetBroadband installed base since the beginning of the year. Ship owners and managers are attracted to the global reach and reliability of FleetBroadband, and they value the high quality service that they receive from Inmarsat and our partners."

"OTESAT Maritel has been a leading distribution partner for FleetBroadband since its launch, so we are delighted to have activated the 30,000th terminal and help the service reach this major milestone," said George Polychronopoulos, CEO of OTESAT-Maritel. "Our partnership with Inmarsat has been very successful, bringing together the technical excellence of Inmarsat services with OTESAT Maritel's insight into the global shipping market and our high-quality customer service."
