"We are pleased to announce this multi-year agreement to provide connectivity services for the SKOM fleet," said Athina Vezyri, Executive Vice President of Maritime for Speedcast. "SKOM is an existing Speedcast customer that wanted to upgrade from a basic L-band service to a higher-throughput Ku-band VSAT service from Speedcast. This migration to broadband connectivity is a trend we see in the market because these services are becoming essential in the modern world of commercial shipping.
