Telenor Maritime focus strongly on fisheries with satellite, data and GSM services for mobile communications. The new mobile services developed for the fisheries enable the crew to use their mobile phones just as on land even though they are on the fishing grounds such as the Barents Sea. Modern shipping requires effective ‘always on’ communication between ship and land. Demand for cost-effective, high capacity communication channels is surging. Internet access and email on board are both essential to operations and vital to attracting and retain motivated, professional crews.
