AND Group Appointed As Distribution Partner For Inmarsat FleetBroadband

LONDON, September 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


AND Group plc, an internationally recognized provider of communication services to the marine and offshore sectors, today announces that it has been appointed as a distribution partner for Inmarsat's FleetBroadband service.

AND Group can now distribute the full range of FleetBroadband services: from FB150 for smaller vessels needing voice communications and lower data speeds, through to FB500 for large merchant fleets needing high-speed data, value-added services and a full managed service provision.

The company has also been appointed as a distribution partner for Inmarsat's global satellite phone services, which include FleetPhone for the marine environment and the global handheld satellite phone IsatPhone Pro.

"We are delighted to welcome AND Group as a FleetBroadband distributor," said Perry Melton, Chief Operating Officer of Inmarsat.  "AND Group has built a solid maritime business and a strong reputation for knowing what maritime customers need. We are excited about the potential for AND Group to tap into two key areas of growth for FleetBroadband: migrating their customers who are inadequately served by their current satellite communications services, and securing new customers and exploring new parts of the market."

Ian Robinson, CEO of AND Group, said, "We have achieved some significant customer wins with FleetBroadband, across the whole family of services.  This is good news for us and our customers.  Being appointed as an Inmarsat distribution partner will enable AND Group to build on our success, offer our customers better services and long-term value, and grow our business. We already have offices in the UK, Greece, Singapore and Brazil and will be looking to extend our network to offer the services on a global basis."

With the appointment of AND Group there are now 14 FleetBroadband distributors, which sell both direct and through a network of service providers.
