What our customers say....
"Whether our guests are joining "Oceanic Discoverer" on expeditions in Western Australia's remote Kimberley, Papua New Guinea, Melanesia or New Zealand, the ability to instantly share their vacation experiences with friends and family at home has become increasingly important over recent years. We also recognize the importance for our crew to maintain contact with their family. Although our expeditions take in some of the most remote and inaccessible locations throughout the South Pacific, our guests and crew are now able to communicate with the home front both quickly and cost effectively, from any location at any time of day.
Choosing the right system to meet our client's expectations, along with our internal requirements for reliable and cost effective communications between Head Office and the ship, was vital and ASC has delivered an integrated system that has exceeded our stated ambitions. The ASC system is not only cost effective, but surprisingly "fast" for satellite technology and we have been delighted with the ease of the installation process and the ongoing technical support provided by ASC.
Client uptake of both the telephony and internet systems has been instantaneous, exceeding our expectations and offering a good return on our investment.
We have been so impressed with the service and expertise provided by ASC that we will shortly begin the installation of the same system aboard "Coral Princess" ahead of our 2011 Kimberley Coast cruising season."

“I have just navigated the Great Escape around the peripheral of cyclone Dominic. Our new marine VSAT satellite voice and data system from Australian Satellite Communications using the small commercial grade Sea Tel 2406 antenna was used continually to download live weather information and keep in phone contact with our Broome head office during cyclonic type weather including some torrential rain conditions. Critical decisions needed to be made quickly in such arduous conditions and reliable high speed broadband internet assisted greatly throughout the entire journey”
“We are now able to conduct our business from offshore and shore to ship reliably. At the same time provide also our clients affordable high speed internet and voice via our pre-paid voice and internet systems for safety, business and keeping clients and crew in contact with families. From the remote Kimberly Coast region and nearly north to Indonesia, the Australian Satellite Communications MSAT service works extremely well and has made a major difference”
