Telenor Maritime will deliver 3G and 4G mobile systems for Fjord Line’s FTSR

Ferry operator Fjord Line and communications provider Telenor Maritime have extended their existing strategic partnership for onboard mobile services for a further five years.

“In a period of pandemic and major challenges for the ferry and cruise line companies, we greatly appreciate that our customers choose to continue their cooperation with Telenor Maritime as a partner,” said Lars Erik Lunøe, CEO of Telenor Maritime. “It is a confirmation that a relationship is good and sustainable for both parties, and it gives us an opportunity to deliver an even higher quality of service in the future.”

Services will be provided for all ships in Fjord Line’s fleet, including its new fast catamaran FSTR.  The vessel will be put into service on the route between Kristiansand, Norway, and Hirtshals, Denmark. Telenor Maritime will deliver 3G and 4G mobile systems for the ship to provide onboard connectivity.

“FSTR will carry passengers across the Skagerrak comfortably at high speed, with a reliable and world-class mobile coverage providing fast 3G and 4G mobile broadband connections for our passengers,” said Roald Rossnes, chief development officer at Fjord Line. “With this new ship, Fjord Line consolidates its leading role in the transition to the low-emission society and the maritime green shift.”
