SES to meet soaring cruise bandwidth demand
« on: June 10, 2022, 07:05:57 PM »
"As cruise ships return to service, SES is working to meet 'unprecedented' bandwidth demand that's a whopping 50% higher per user than in 2019.

Its next-generation O3b mPOWER satellites going up later this year with Boeing and SpaceX will be capable of delivering multi-gigabit connectivity. The first six of 11 satellites are scheduled for launch in the third quarter.

Service is expected to begin in early 2023. "

Ed: Princess Internet is slightly better than the old days and it appears that help is on the way.
