Web Surfing at Sea

Short article focusing on the different, but really available, systems that allow internet access off-shore. It elaborates on the KVH and Sea Tel offerings.
“Sea Tel just introduced WaveCall 4003, meant for quite large yachts. It uses high-frequency GEOs and an antenna engineered to fit a 48-inch dome and offers 512/128 Kbps down/up speeds, both expandable, and voice. Coverage is wide, but not global. Hardware is $35,000, and a $1,000-a-month contract includes a gigabyte of data.”
