As we all know from personal experience with home Internet connections and cell phones, with increased speed come the opportunity and reasons to increase your data usage. With the launch of KVH’s global HTS mini-VSAT Broadband network, commercial and leisure vessels around the globe have gained access to data connections far faster than were previously available along with a simultaneous unlimited data channel.

While mini-VSAT Broadband subscribers always enjoyed transparency into their overall data use, subscribers to KVH’s HTS mini-VSAT Broadband network now have an unmatched look at exactly how their data is being used with new application category reporting via the myKVH portal and the mini-VSAT Manager suite of tools.

Want to know what days saw the highest data use? No problem.

Wondering what types of applications were driving your data consumption? Now you find out.
