Demand for Internet connectivity on yachts has increased steadily over the past few years. While getting online isn’t an exact science, finding a cost-effective solution with connection flexibility, reliability, cost management that is also capable of providing plenty of bandwidth is no easy task. We’ve collected a few case studies from around the world to showcase how our cellular routers have helped achieve this.
