MTN Satellite Communications Celebrates 15-Year Anniversary of Delivering Internet Service to the Cruise Industry, Exceeding 150 Million Logins; Company Continues to Raise the Bar, Delivering Communications Solutions for Cruise Ship Passengers and Crew While at Sea.

 

MTN Satellite Communications (MTN), a provider of maritime communications, connectivity and content services to remote locations around the world, is celebrating the 15-year anniversary of its Internet solution aboard cruise ships. Since 1999, more than 150 million passengers and crew members have logged in to the Internet to stay connected in some of the most remote locations around the world.

 

From the Internet Cafe to its recently launched Connect at Sea mobile application, MTN continues to provide the cruise industry innovative communication solutions to meet the evolving needs and expectations of passengers.

 

"Over the past 15 years, the communications landscape has changed dramatically, forcing cruise lines and communication providers to revisit how Internet enabled devices are being used by passengers and crew," said Brent Horwitz, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Cruise & Ferry Services at MTN Satellite Communications. "As a pioneer in the industry, we are evolving the Internet Cafe, not just in functionality, but in how to charge onboard. We consistently look for reliable ways to keep crew and passengers connected via their mobile devices, while also considering the price, speed and overall user experience."

 

The industry's first Internet Cafe was launched in 1999 following two years of "proof of concept" leveraging MTN's Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) technology.

 

MTN revolutionizes the way that passengers and crew stay connected with friends and family at home and addresses changing passenger dynamics with quarterly enhancements. The company will further validate its commitment to delivering an onboard, cutting-edge Internet experience, with the launch of its Next Generation Network later this year.

 

In addition to the Internet Cafe, MTN offers a variety of innovative solutions to meet the expectations of cruise passengers, including onboard Wi-Fi, MTN Worldwide TV and the newly launched Connect at Sea voice application.
