Internet firms merge

ADVERTISEMENT

International Ocean Networks (ION) and CobbettHill Earth Station (CHE) have merged to offer Internet service via satellite to users across the world.



Launched in 2007, ION has provided monthly maritime broadband Internet services to the yachting industry and commercial work boats.



Since 1996, CHE has provided land-based Internet via satellite services. Using iDirect’s satellite platform lets CHE build new networks for ION to stretch maritime Internet services by linking to other teleports across the world.



By integrating CHE’s iDirect Evolution platform with ION’s existing networks, the companies expect to offer their clients faster broadband Internet at sea at no extra cost. They also expect to add new coverage areas.

Billing and administration at the two companies continue as before. For more information, visit www.internationaloceannetworks.com and www.cobbett-hill.com.
