MTN UltraBurst delivers high speeds in Med

ADVERTISEMENT

South Florida-based MTN Communications has launched MTN UltraBurst for this year’s Mediterranean season. The UltraBurst service delivers on-demand, consumption-based, high-throughput Ku-band connections.

The satellite bandwidth “burst ability” of this service is ideal for streaming content and media to user devices and systems on board yachts.

UltraBurst enables yacht captains and electronic technical officers (ETOs) to select the highest-speeds available when needed through a touchscreen via the MTN Maestro mobile app – MTN Conductor.

“We are able to introduce this level of control and on-demand speeds because we directly own, manage and operate the industry’s most powerful communications and content delivery network,” said Derik Wagner, managing director, yacht services, MTN. “This is one more service from our unmatched technology toolkit designed to exceed the needs of the world’s most bandwidth-intensive yachts. It also extends our ability to offer on-demand, consumption-based plans in one more maritime market. This model provides the most flexibility, while delivering the fastest speeds, at the best value and price, where customers pay only for what they use.”
