Castor Marine adds Tampnet 4G connectivity in North Sea

Maritime communications provider Castor Marine has expanded its range of coastal and offshore connectivity options with the signing of a reseller agreement with Tampnet, the largest offshore 4G LTE network operator in the North Sea.

In the past, vessels supported by Castor Marine automatically switched to VSAT connections within the company’s network when moving outside of shore GSM coverage in the North Sea. With this new agreement those users will have access to wider 4G coverage, allowing them to stay on cellular connections within the Tampnet zone.

“The expansion of our services with Tampnet 4G is part of our growth strategy and our mission to ensure the best vessel connectivity anywhere in the world,” said Ivo Veldkamp, CEO of Castor Marine.

“The seamless integration of Voyager VSAT with 4G LTE services from Tampnet ensures high availability for business-critical operations, reducing downtime and associated costs for all our clients. I thank Tampnet for the good cooperation from the start and look forward to serving our clients with this connectivity upgrade.”
