Leisure & Yachting

OneWeb and AST’s satellite communication services will offer users of leisure craft vessels large and small the same high-speed and high-quality connectivity throughout their entire journey, whether along the coast or mid-ocean. With OneWeb, leisure craft owners will have the luxury of activating plans on demand, instantaneously providing seasonal connectivity options based on usage to eliminate unexpected costs. 

Providing the connected guest experience

LEO (Low-earth-orbit) satellite connectivity, provided by OneWeb and AST, can give ship owners and operators the ability to service passengers with a more refined experience and business travellers with a more productive journey. Low-latency connectivity allows passengers to work during voyages, stream movies or TV boxsets, play online games, make video calls to friends and family, and upload photos and videos to social media. As a result, ship owners and operators can improve customer loyalty and increase profitability. 

A better voyage across all touchpoints

LEO satellite connectivity lets ship owners and operators transform the sea travel experience for passengers of all types. In addition to giving guests access to their own entertainment and content, OneWeb connectivity lets passengers make any itinerary changes they need to make in real-time, provide necessary pre-arrival documentation online, book additional tickets or hotel rooms. This enhances the experience at every touchpoint along the journey.

Bespoke data management

In addition to giving owners and passengers access to their own entertainment and content, AST can help them calculate the impact of their data use to make sure they have the right connection to suit their needs. By offering in-depth visibility and control of the networks and data used by the vessel, our INTEGRA services put the control in the owner/captain’s hand via the easy-to-use My AST Portal.
