Ancylus AB & Net1 enter a strategic partnership to offer the Scandinavian & Nordic maritime market a hybrid broadband solution.

The new Hybrid broadband solution is tailor-made for the shipping industry operating in the Nordic waters. By offering the Net1’s wireless broadband the vessels can get connected with high speed internet while they are close to the Scandinavian shores (50 – 60 nm) or in the ports, without any roaming issues.

Once the vessels leave the reach of the wireless network the communication switches over to broadband via satellite, provided by Ancylus. This service is optimal for Short Sea trade, Fishing industry, Offshore, Projects, Ferries, Yachts and other marine activities in the region.

"At a time when the shipping industry is suffering from an economic down-turn, we are happy to help their businesses by substantially lowering the communication costs," says Ulf Harderup CEO of Ancylus. "The shipping industry is increasingly getting dependent on high speed internet and voice, both for business-, and for leisure. By introducing the hybrid solution we are both increasing the data speeds and decreasing the costs."

Ancylus is a Sweden-based satellite broadband supplier meeting the demand for data, connectivity and bandwidth in the maritime and avionic environments. Net 1 offers mobile broadband, VoIP and M2M solutions to consumers and businesses.
