Onshore, the days of voice communication as the primary means of staying connected are long gone and the same is now true at sea. O3b delivers truly immersive broadband experiences at sea leading to unrivaled guest satisfaction, providing increased revenue generation, enhanced crew welfare and the potential for greater IT operational efficiency for cruise operators. Guests and crew benefit significantly from higher data rates and lower latency with internet speeds comparable to speeds onshore. Super-fast connectivity means they can stay in touch with family and friends through messaging, and social media without the frustrations of the slower speeds that they have had to put up with in the past. They can now stream movies, browse the internet and even game online.
