Marlink pre-paid cards offer flexible connectivity for ships’ crews

Wednesday, 07 Feb 2018

Marlink has become Inmarsat’s first Fleet Xpress Value Added Reseller to offer pre-paid voice cards enabling seafarers to call family and friends ashore on Inmarsat’s Global Xpress Ka-band and FleetBroadband L-band, or to use the same prepaid minutes on other Marlink services including Ku- and C-band VSAT.

Seagoing personnel now have unparalleled flexibility when using only one prepaid card to make calls to landlines and mobile numbers.
Tore Morten Olsen, president Maritime, Marlink, said: “We are removing the uncertainty of calling home and allowing shipowners to provide easy access to reliable, premium quality voice calling on a global basis by bringing Fleet Xpress into our existing prepaid solutions. Our latest development for Fleet Xpress confirms our focus to provide the smartest solutions regardless of connectivity.”
The prepaid service is available through Marlink’s established Universal Card as well as its Universal Card Go and Prepaid Talk products.
