68m explorer yacht – M/Y Ragnar installed our DOME router before it was presented at the Monaco yacht week and made available for charter. 4G and upcoming 5G is a very important point when it comes to choosing a yacht for charter.
Benetti, 43m – installed our DOME router while cruising in Croatia. We captured a video of a speed test done while the yacht was crossing from Croatia to Italy. At 32 NM (64km) offshore the speed test showed 42 Mbps down, 27 up.
Hakvoort, 39m – installed our DOME router and reported that they had coverage in Albania 75km offshore connecting to a WIND tower in Italy. At that distance they still had 50 Mbps down!
Oceanco, 110m – Installed two DOME router systems while the superyacht is completing a major refit project. It was clear that the old systems with long coax cables to the router below deck cant provide the performance guests expect from 4G nowadays.
Feadship, 83.5m – Installed our 5G DOME router to eliminate signal loss in long coax cables they had. The dome system improved 4G performance 3.5 times compared to the classic solution.
Amels, 55m – installed our classic system as per spec while the yacht was being built.
Inace, 40m – Installed our 5G DOME router in Sardinia. It took the crew 3h to install as all they had to do was run one ethernet cable.
2020 5G DOME router: I am so pleased that we have Meridian 5G provider for internet service onboard MY Lady Jade. This is our 3rd season using their services.We installed their new DOME system several weeks ago in Sardinia, installation was quick, went well and my internet service has been excellent. My guests do a lot of video calls, video streaming and have had no problems with buffering.
We also observed a very impressive range offshore – the maximum distance was 46,3 NM, it was good enough for emails, grab files download, etc … we do not have VSat.
We also subscribe to Meridian’s bonding and support package, support is exceptional, it is great to do business with a company that cares about its customers.
We use their unlimited EU SIM data package as well and never had any throttling.
Whenever we have areas where networks are overloaded and the speed drops temporarily, it happens rarely but Meridian is coming with ideas about swapping networks, adjustments… I recommend it to anyone.
Heesen, 55m – Installed our classic router for the Owner, and the DOME router for the guests to save space inside the boat.
46m – Installed our 5G DOME router in Croatia, getting speeds of 279 Mbps down / 130 up.
