Maritime wireless digital network CellAtSea® growing fast

CellAtSea®, the brand name of Maritime Communication Partners (MCP) digital wireless services, enables passengers and crew to remain connected through voice, messaging, MMS, mobile internet and Blackberry services while at sea, and the company states a record 24% growth in its digital wireless service over the past 3 years.

MCP's global maritime wireless network provides passengers and crew with superior wireless connectivity, and instant access to onboard information and entertainment applications. Virtually seamless, the service is conveniently billed by the user's home carrier.

"We experienced an average of 180% increase in data traffic with record passenger and crew use of mobile internet and smart phone services in 2011.  We expect this to grow substantially in 2012," said Fred Sorensen, Managing Director MCP, Americas.

 He added, "Passengers are increasingly making use of onboard wireless services to access a broad range of web-based services, using their smartphones and other handheld devices to keep in touch with family, friends and work, surf the net, update social media pages, texting and reading e-mails.  In addition to improving the passenger experience, these premium services generate significant on-board revenue."
