Buzz Marine has announced the availability of lower cost European and Global roaming data for its Hubba X4 range of marine mobile broadband systems. SIM cards from Buzz are charged from just £3.00 per GB with bundles available up to 500GB per month, ideal for bandwidth-hungry coastal ferries and superyachts. The Buzz offer includes effective coverage for all EU countries and 58 other major countries around the world and with bundles starting at £75 per month for 15GB which offers a considerable saving on previously available packages.
The Buzz SIM will operate on nearly all available 3G networks in any one country as well as 4G throughout most of the EU and larger countries. When using the Hubbax X4 Duo, which has a dual SIM facility, the Buzz roaming SIM can operate as the default card to ensure connection wherever the boat is located. The spare slot can be used if the boat is staying in any one country for an extended period where the skipper might obtain a cheaper local alternative.
The new Hubba X4 Duo allows vessels to pass seamlessly through different regions or providers. The system also offers multi frequency options to allow the Hubba to be used in various global regions. The 9-40V DC power supply or 110 – 240v AC with EU/US or UK style plug options provide highly flexible installation requirements ensuring the Hubba X4 Duo can be used on virtually any vessel afloat.
The HubbaX 4 Duo is complimented by its custom designed MIMO high gain, marine specific antenna. The antenna is multi directional to optimise the very best reception from the strongest signal available. Its robust construction has been extensively tested to withstand the rigours of the saltwater environment and UV attack.
The lower cost SIM option from Buzz Marine opens up the possibility of effective coastal broadband data and voice connection up to 15 miles offshore to an even wider range of yachts, motorboats and commercial vessels throughout Europe and beyond.
