Sydney, Sep 6, 2017 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Speedcast International Limited (ASX:SDA), the world's most trusted provider of highly reliable, fully managed, remote communication and IT solutions, today introduced GO4SPEED(TM), a new global near-shore, data-only 4G/Long Term Evolution (LTE) solution for Maritime and Energy. GO4SPEED provides flexible usage packages, cost control and overage protection, is easy to install and can be configured to compliment other communications services such as VSAT and MSS.

"GO4SPEED enables cost-effective mobile data for the Maritime industry, enhancing our global VSAT and MSS services," said Dan Rooney, Product Director for Commercial Maritime, Speedcast. "The Maritime and Energy sectors demand affordable, yet manageable, high-speed near-shore communications, and GO4SPEED delivers this.
