New Beam Upgrades Broadband Service in the U.S. Pacific Northwest

Did you know that in April 2016, KVH invested in an additional Ku-band service beam that provides Pacific Northwest U.S. coverage, where many large fishing fleets operate? It’s part of our ongoing effort to constantly improve and enhance the global mini-VSAT Broadband network.

“Operating our own network provides us with unique opportunities to offer creative solutions to our customers’ problems,” says Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH Chief Executive Officer. “Already, more ships rely on KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband network than the next two maritime VSAT providers combined, and our growing customer base and satellite capacity are testimony to our forward thinking approach to technology and services.”

With the new addition, we’re now providing you with maritime communications via 26 transponders on 19 high-powered satellites around the globe.
