FleetBroadband from Stratos – New Benefits In our continuing commitment to providing exceptional service, Stratos is pleased to announce several enhancements to the FleetBroadband service.
Super Quiet Time (SQT)
FleetBroadband is the most economically efficient choice in the market today and can be a key driver in enhancing crew morale.
Beginning on October 1, Stratos will provide SQT rates around the clock. The FleetBroadband rate during SQT is also being reduced to match the mini-M, Fleet and Inmarsat-B rates that customers already enjoy.
Maritime Safety Service
Starting on October 1, FleetBroadband users will have a direct connection to a regional maritime rescue coordination center via short code 505. All calls made to this service are free of charge and access is provided from all FleetBroadband terminals (FB 150/250/500).
8 kbps and 16 kbps Streaming Service Introduction
New streaming rates are being introduced to support new offerings such as the recently announced Blue Ocean Wireless (BOW) GSM Service from Stratos.
The new 8 kbps and 16 kbps streaming rates are supported via FleetBroadband LaunchPad version 1.4.4 which is available for download here.
