Satcom hardware and airtime from one hand
EPAK is developer and manufacturer of stabilized maritime satellite antennas, offering airtime service together with the hardware on request.
The following steps will guide you towards finding the right airtime service.
1. Determine your shipping areaDepending on your cruising area we will book your service with one of the satellite operators. Knowing the different prices, we can find the best option for your required coverage. See "Worldwide"or "Europe, Middle East, Atlantic" for details. Many more satcom services covering different geographical areas are available on request.
2.Satellite Data Plans | Up and Download speeds
Find a tariff depending on your communication and data needs. Tariffs start form 512kbps and can reach up to 24 Mbps or more. Satellite Data Plans are available as unlimited internet plans or pay-as-you go.
Our standard tariffs are shared services which are much cheaper than dedicated bandwidth and offer best value for money. However you need to be aware that a shared service implies that the bandwidth is shared between a fixed number of users. Available bandwidth therefore ranges from MIR (Maximum Information Rate) in the best case to CIR (Committed Information Rate) at worst. Both MIR and CIR are displayed for your information and decision making. While the speed can be reduced at times due to the constrains detailed above, data volume of unlimited plans is truly unlimited. On request, we also offer you 1:1 data tariffs, where you are guaranteed to have the full bandwidth available.
3. Select a contract duration for airtime
The longer the contract, the lower the monthly rate. Standard terms are 12, 24 or 36 months. On some services shorter periods are available on request. Good to know: Many services have a standby option. If you foresee not to use the service for a certain period you can ask to pause the airtime (Minimum Standby 1 month).
