We use Home | Acutec - Communications, Entertainment & IT at Sea<https://acutec.com/> on the RV Investigator<https://mnf.csiro.au/en/RV-Investigator>. It is ok had it for a while as then it was the only decent non military coverage for going down to the south pole area. It is VSAT. Big money each month. It’s a bundle of data/voice/handset.

We are watching Starlink too for their marine version too.

Hi all,

Keen to see from industry what the best sat service option/hardware is for one of my boats.  It’s a large research boat that heads a fair way out to see (Raine Island for example).  Being 100-300km off-shore the ocean gets a bit “pitchy” :). Obviously something with Starlink is preferred (but also know a marinised version is later this year), but also keen to see what are the best rates/deals on more traditional satellite tech and bandwidth offers.  Hoping there’s peeps on here with some maritime capability or contacts.
