Weighing less than 9 pounds (3.9 kg) and just 11 inches (28 cm) in diameter, the Inmarsat FleetOne is an excellent choice for the racer keen on maximizing broadband access with a minimum on-vessel footprint. If streaming IP services are a necessity for promotional videos or vessel to support team conferencing, the Fleet Broadband 250 is available. It is just 11 ounces (0.3 kg) heavier than the 150. Both systems also provide crystal-clear voice communication throughout their range from 70N to 70S.
