Since its launch in 2016, our Fleet Xpress service, powered by our Global Xpress (GX) constellation, has been delivering high-speed internet services to meet your operational requirements and giving seafarers an instant connection to home, social media and access to a huge variety of content streaming services.
Due to the increased trend in crew members bringing their own content and streaming services onboard, we have made the decision to End of Life our stand-alone Fleet Media crew entertainment service effective from 30 June 2020.
Since its launch, our network has been providing unparalleled high-speed broadband to our customers. But we’re not stopping there. The network is transforming; starting with the successful launch of our fifth GX satellite in December 2019, to deliver more capacity than the entire GX1-GX4 fleet combined and over the next four years, we will be launching an additional seven new satellites, including two dedicated to Arctic coverage, connecting all our customers to a better future with a highly-secure, inter-operable and ultra-high performing network.
This continued investment ensures we continue to offer you exciting innovative services and options for your crew, that match their increased appetite for data and growing use of content and streaming services.
Although the current Fleet Media offering will be discontinued, it remains our intention to develop an innovative content delivery service and we look forward to sharing more news about these exciting developments in due course.
