Sat firm expands airtime rate plans

When it was introduced in February, the ultra-compact TracPhone V3 from KVH Industries was the world's smallest maritime VSAT system, but it also changed the equation for how mariners thought about paying for their broadband service at sea.

Its simple metered airtime plan is 49 cents per minute for all voice calls worldwide and 99 cents per megabyte at the fastest available speeds via the mini-VSAT Broadband network.

Now, KVH has announced that this new, streamlined metered pricing program is available to all new mini-VSAT Broadband subscribers, whether they are using a TracPhone V3 or V7, with packages designed to support a wide range of monthly data needs.

In addition to the new metered rate plans, KVH also offers mariners its fixed-price and seasonal airtime options.
