Unity Line has chosen the Swedish Nowhere Networks as a strategic supplier of high-speed Internet connection on-board its ferries Polonia and Skania sailing between Świnoujście and Ystad.
To date the ferry line has had Internet access via satellite connection with limited bandwidth and speed. Passengers have had no possibility of connecting to the Web while at sea during the 160 km-long voyage.
"[...] The agreement provides us with a complete service which includes the communication solution as well as the management of it around the clock 365 days a year. A supplier which comes highly recommended from other shipping companies and which will handle everything from identifying and negotiating mast sites, operating the equipment, project management etcetera suits us perfectly," P-O Forsberg, Deputy Managing Director, Unity Line Sweden, commented.
Asbjörn Frydenlund, CEO, Nowhere Networks, added, "We are very proud to deliver our solution to Unity Lines and look forward to helping them offer high speed Internet to their customers, staff and for the IT-systems on the vessels. With Unity Lines we strengthen our position as the market leader in the Baltic Sea and Northern Europe. We feel very comfortable in delivering high speed Internet across the Baltic Sea, all the way from Sweden to Poland."
