Faster On-Board WiFi and Mobile Data Coming to Brittany Ferries

brittany ferries

Brittany Ferries, the cross-channel ferry company that operates a large fleet of ferries and cruise ships between France and the UK, Ireland, and Spain, and between the UK and Spain, has partnered up with Telenor Maritime to upgrade their on-board mobile and WiFi connectivity for passengers.

The new connectivity platform will offer Premium Wi-Fi, VSAT and Mobile Broadband Backhaul. Additionally Honfleur, the forthcoming clean, green, LNG-powered newbuild ferry arriving in June 2019, will also be equipped with 3G services. At present it’s already possible to connect with a free WiFi service on-board, although this imposes some restrictions on content and is fed by a fairly slow Satellite link (see video below).

The CSO of Telenor Maritime, Jan Erik Norli, said: “We are delighted to be in a position to develop our partnership and services with Brittany Ferries. We are confident that our communications services will substantially enhance the customer journey on the ships we are upgrading. This is yet another important step for Telenor Maritime‚Äôs service-expansion in Europe.

    Beware that Telenor Maritime can be expensive and is not included in mobile roaming deals especially EU regulations. Normal advice on cruises is to turn off mobile roaming and when in harbour check you connect to a land based network so same will apply to Ferries. Use portable WISP router to share WIFI between devices and use WIFI calling unless barred.

    Just go on AP mode and turn on wifi – job done.
