Ferry passengers have come to expect fast broadband, even when at sea. To deliver on their essential requirements, Eckerö Linjen has investigated several solutions to facilitate stable and high-speed Internet connectivity. With the services from Telenor Maritime, three moving antennas aboard M/S Eckerö and two antennas onshore in Berghamn on Åland and Grisslehamn in Sweden provide the high-speed connectivity required for quality internet.

“This installation significantly increases the capacity with its substantial expansion of range and subsequently the coverage. There are no longer any blind spots. Until today, we have had ongoing connection problems when the ship is too far from shore. This is no longer a problem,” explains Kenneth Påvall, IT- Infrastructure Manager at Rederi AB Eckerö. “Thanks to this new technology, you will be able to enjoy streaming services and surf with significant speed and stability. Connecting to the wireless network will continue to be free for all guests onboard, Kenneth Påvall, IT- Infrastructure Manager continues.

“We were delighted to develop this solution for Eckerö Linjen, one of the most important ferry companies in the Baltic Sea,” said Lars Erik Lunøe, CEO of Telenor Maritime. “This is yet another important step for Telenor Maritime’s service-expansion in Europe, and we are confident that our communications services will substantially enhance the customer experience on route between Sweden and Åland.”

“We are pleased to give our guests the opportunity to be online at all times not to mention how proud we are to be the first ship on the Sea of Åland offering such fast and secure Internet connection,” says Tomas Karlsson, CEO of Eckerö Linjen. “The new high-speed broadband conceives opportunities in developing our conference concepts on-board with total digital integration.” Tomas Karlsson continues.
