Roaming While Cruising

Wireless Maritime Services, a joint venture of AT&T Wireless and MTN, is offering a roaming solution for GSM subscribers while cruising in international waters. I’ve written about similar solutions before, if you have a large enough yacht you might even install it for private use…
“Our passengers now have the option of using their own mobile phones while at sea, whether they wish to stay reachable at their usual phone number or check for voicemails and text messages whenever they like.” Wireless service is now available on the Island Escape for many passengers with GSM phones operating on the 900 MHz frequency, which is common throughout Europe. Passengers will be billed for usage by the wireless carrier to whom they subscribe, as with any other roaming service”
