Spirit passengers to be connected

Spirit of Tasmania ferry passengers will be able to stay connected during Bass Strait crossings following the introduction of satellite data streaming services. Consumer data services will be delivered alongside telemetry services. Optus spokesperson Paul Sheridan said: “The two-pronged technology deal will see service delivery … to keep the ferry and staff in communication, as well as additional capacity provided to allow passengers to connect to the Internet. The addition of wideband Internet via satellite to these newly refurbished vessels is an exciting development and opens up a wide range of possible commercial services for TT Line.” The new service is delivered through a partnership between Optus Satellite and Electrotech Australia.
