The new coverage area includes Alaska, the west coasts of Canada and the United States, Hawaii and extends into Asia. Vessels, as well as planes, now have access to uninterrupted Ku-band Internet and voice services from the Asian coast eastward throughout North America and the Caribbean, across the North Atlantic, and through Mediterranean waters, according to KVH.
"We have now successfully rolled out a single, unified broadband service across roughly two-thirds of the world's major shipping and aeronautical lanes, enabling us to offer commercial, leisure and government customers a unique mobile communications hardware and service solution," said Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH CEO, in a statement.
