Global Coverage except the extreme polar regions
Installed just before last season, didn't have any issues and installation went very quickly. Even just for the improvements in weather the reports I get made it quite worth it, although having that seamless global connection works very well for the comms. Great company to go through as well, Apollo's support staff was very helpful throughout making the whole process that much easier.
Got my ship outfitted with the FleetBroadband 500 a couple months ago, very happy with it as a whole! It works as it should, haven't had any issues whatsoever and downtime wasn't bad at all either. It makes everything so much easier with diagnostics and communications for the crew and operations.
