Hi Roy,

10" is getting down to the size where it will fit on my Harley - we're getting there!!

I wonder what market share of the 85,000 phones KVH has sold?

I'm liking these daily announcements and price as well.

Bob

Nice move yesterday, let's see if we can hold it today... the market isn't in a very good mood so far this morning.

Mobile Broadband Goes Wide in U.S. - Sort Of

By Jay Wrolstad, Wireless.NewsFactor.com

KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI - news) has claimed an industry first by announcing availability of mobile broadband Internet access throughout the United States -- but you'll need an RV or a big boat to get it.

KVH said its DirecPC service delivers Internet content to laptops and PCs via satellite at speeds of up to 400 kilobits per second (kbps) -- seven times faster than common 56 kbps dial-up connections and nearly 30 times faster than average mobile data connections.

By Land or By Sea

Broadband signals are transmitted via a Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) satellite owned by Bell ExpressVu, a Canadian satellite service provider, through an arrangement with Hughes Network Systems, KVH said. Transmissions then are sent to a server and made accessible using any of KVH's 18- and 24-inch DVB-compatible TracVision antennas mounted on boats and vehicles anywhere within the continental United States and as far as 100 miles off the coast.

The company's TracNet mobile Internet server includes cellular and satellite modems, wireless connections to laptops or other computers, and a hard drive for data storage.

The Wi-Fi Connection

"This is the first mobile high-speed Internet service in the U.S. that allows complete Web access, and we eventually hope to be the conduit for all digital data sent to vehicles," KVH spokesperson Chris Watson told Wireless NewsFactor.

While the service is targeted toward large marine vessels, RVs, motor homes, buses and tractor-trailer rigs, Watson said the company is developing a three-inch antenna for cars and sport utility vehicles. "The key is we have the highest speed by far for mobile Internet access, and users can access a return link using an 802.11b (Wi-Fi) card that has widespread acceptance in the industry," he said.

To request data or send e-mail, mobile DirecPC customers have two return link options: a landline connection for use while parked or dockside, and a satellite/cellular system for mobile use. In each case, the return link will run at moderate speeds compared with the satellite download delivering data.

Cost of Doing Business

KVH said the system's target audience ranges from businesspeople who need to access their company's Web site and critical information on the road, to people in the the telematics industry, which provides a wide variety of real-time information to drivers.

Watson said the company has not yet set a cost for its service, although there likely will be a monthly fee and a charge of about 79 cents per minute. Getting started isn't cheap, either; antennas range from US$2,995 to $8,995, while the server goes for roughly $6,000. DirecPC service is available through the company's distribution network of some 3,000 dealers nationwide.

BP, there are many possibilities besides just single boats. We need to expand our thinking a bit. The Wi-LAN bit is EXTREMELY powerful. See my post on another thread. You can also click to see the post I was replying to.

Think about TracNet on a commuter train. It is only $10,000 per train and $0.79 per minute, but people can "work", sending-receiving E-Mails, etc. while commuting. For long distance this would be quite an attraction for Amtrak, where a long distance trip measures in days. They could even show satellite TV and movies!

Hi Bridge,

I'm sold - I'll need to upgrade all of my yachts!gg

On second thought maybe I'll just buy some more stock.Roy and I have been joking for years about if things go like planned,this company will enable me to get that dream boat.

On the serious side,the big market is the SUV mobile sector.That I will buy for TV use not sure there will be a need to tuck a server in the spare tire well and go wireless for another $6000. Although I can see some of the high end airport limo companies offereing it to the execs and governmental dignitaries??
