Inmarsat, provider of global mobile satellite communications services, announce the first appointments for its global network of XpressLink dealers. Twelve of the world's most-respected maritime communications specialists have been approved to sell XpressLink, providing access to shipping fleets worldwide through sales teams based in North America, Europe, Middle East and Asia.
XpressLink offers a fully-integrated Ku-band and L-band solution for a fixed monthly cost. A complete solution managed by Inmarsat, it delivers a compelling combination of broadband speed, a reliable and high-quality service, and global coverage.
