Elcome joins Starlink supplier list

Elcome International reports that it has begun providing SpaceX’s Starlink connectivity service to maritime customers.

“We are so excited to bring the benefits of Starlink to our customers,” said Jimmy Grewal, Elcome’s Executive Director.

“It’s not just about fast internet, but the opportunity for us to implement real-time remote monitoring and autonomy solutions for these customers in ways that were not previously possible. Also, consider the benefit to crew members who will now be able to better stay in touch with family and friends while out at sea.”

The company says it will provide installation, integration, and field support to customers using the satcom service, and notes that it has already implemented multi-antenna Starlink arrays delivering hundreds of megabits of low-latency bandwidth on two superyachts catering to more than 100 crew and guests simultaneously.

Orders will be fulfilled from Elcome’s logistics hubs in Spain, Dubai, and Singapore, with different installation and support options available. Subscriptions can be managed via the company’s web portal, including month-to-month billing and the option to pause the service.
