From now until the end of June, KVH is giving its connectivity customers a 50 percent discount if they need to increase their data plans to handle more onboard usage.
The discount is being offered as part of the company’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We have made this offer to commercial maritime vessels and pleasure yachts, and already hundreds of vessels have upgraded,” the company stated in a press release. “In the commercial maritime world, connectivity is more important than ever, with many seafarers unable to go into port and thus needing connectivity to stay in touch or get news. For superyachts, we are seeing the uptake among yachts that have owners and their families on board for extended periods right now.”
Also new at KVH: On June 1, the company plans to add Mediterranean coverage to its KVH Elite unlimited VSAT streaming for superyachts. The service started in the Caribbean in November and now is expanding to the Mediterranean.
