Communications and network provider, Speedcast is to start offering Starlink’s high-speed, low-latency connectivity to its  maritime customers, including cruise ships.

Starlink introduced its maritime connectivity services and equipment earlier this year, delivered via the world’s largest constellation of satellites operating in low earth orbit.

The new service allows users to connect from the most remote locations and waters across the world, the company claimed.

Speedcast said that it had been supporting customer trials to demonstrate the capabilities of Starlink, as part of a seamlessly integrated service.

“Starlink is an exciting new communications pathway for customers, offering significant diversity and added capacity at a time when remote sites continue to push to the farthest ends of the Earth and when bandwidth demand is ever increasing,” said Joe Spytek, Speedcast CEO (pictured).

“As a trusted, agnostic integrator of next-generation technologies for customers, we’re excited to add Starlink to our toolkit to make ubiquitous connectivity a reality for remote operations around the world.”

“We’re excited to provide Starlink’s high-speed, low-latency internet to Speedcast enterprise and maritime customers,” said Jonathan Hofeller, SpaceX Vice President of Starlink Sales.

“This significant leap in connectivity will open even more possibilities for companies to manage operations anywhere on Earth.”
