Connectivity with streaming speeds
and unlimited data

A quantum leap in maritime satellite communications from KVH,

A quantum leap in maritime satellite communications from KVH, delivering everything you want in a single package:

Blazing fast data rates

The advanced 60 cm TracPhone V7HTS, the newest member of KVH’s unique end-to-end SATCOM solution, delivers uncompromised speeds with downloads as fast as 10 Mbps and uploads as fast as 3 Mbps, perfect for streaming HD content and video chatting. That’s also more than triple the download speed and six times the upload speed of KVH’s already fast 60 cm antennas on our original mini-VSAT Broadband service!

Unlimited use data channel

TracPhone V7HTS includes KVH's exclusive dual channel configuration with innovative hybrid airtime plans that deliver a free unlimited use data channel running at the same time as your ultra-fast channel.

That’s right – what other services offer as their airtime plan is a free value-added bonus from KVH!

Most advanced network

TracPhone V7HTS delivers global connections and unmatched speed using new, advanced Intelsat and SKY Perfect JSAT Ku-band satellites that add HTS capabilities to the mini-VSAT Broadband network. Our high-speed worldwide HTS network offers critical advantages over other maritime networks for your personal, operational, and crew connections including: 

  •  25 million square miles added to KVH’s already industry-leading Ku-band coverage, delivering unprecedented coverage for 10/3 Mbps (download/upload)* connectivity

  • greater resilience to weather and rain fade than Ka-band networks

  • no fall back onto antiquated L-band satellites due to rain fade or network beam availability issues

  • integrated cybersecurity using advanced network-level firewall and automated threat management

  • automatic, fast switching among high-speed network beams, ensuring seamless communications wherever you cruise

*Data rates are rate plan maximums and may vary in different regions and under different conditions.

Affordable and flexible service ​

Thanks to our exclusive hybrid airtime plans, you can enjoy the best value, faster speeds at lower cost, and no “bill shock”. 

Our High Speed (HS) rate plans allow you to select the plan that’s right for your expected data consumption. At every price
point you'll get the fastest data speeds on the network with unrestricted access to all applications and protocols. 

At the same time, the TracPhone V7HTS offers a free, unlimited use data channel for lower priority needs with the security of never experiencing overages, and with the option to upgrade to higher speeds.

The Power of Connections

See What Our Customers Are Saying


"We are very dependent upon the KVH TracPhone V7 Ku-band antenna with the worldwide mini-VSAT broadband network. We use it for 24/7 data communications and it also gives me a phone number with a Seattle area code. It would be very difficult to do this trip without the KVH V7. It’s been a real enabler for us."

James Hamilton​
Owner, M/V Dirona, 52-ft Nordhavn​

“Having the KVH TracPhone V3IP on our boat has made a huge difference in our lives, not only for entertainment but for safety and keeping in touch. Anywhere we go, crossing from Florida to the Bahamas or anywhere else, we have telephone and internet all the time. I can always keep up with my charters. People can email me and call me even if I’m in the middle of the ocean. I’m never out of touch. It’s a great thing to have on the boat and I really enjoy it.”​

Skipper Gentry, Owner and Captain
Carolina Gentleman, 45-ft Viking


“This helped us reduce our operating costs and improve our connectivity in bad weather conditions. This system has also operated flawlessly and has reduced our operating cost by more than 60 percent.”
 

Mark Robba, Owner
Dunia Baru, 165-ft Phinisi

“[Using the TracPhone V7,] I have been on several conference calls, constant e-mails and sometimes spending as much as entire days while very deep in the Southern Bahamas known as the Exumas, on the phone with nary a cut off and when we did have a minor glitch your people were sensational in getting the problem handled immediately and efficiently.” 
 

Stanley Hanin, Owner
ALTISA VII ½, 96-ft Nordlund


“My wife and I don't have a permanent home port. Because we are constantly migrating, we needed a consistent Internet source and phone connection in all kinds of environments. We chose the TracPhone V7 for its reliability,speed of Internet connection and quality of the telephone service.”
 

Rick Heiniger, Owner
Eliana, 76-ft Nordhavn


“Our TracPhone has changed our crew’s overall capabilities and confidence. We feel extremely safe knowing that it powers up quickly, gives us access to weather, navigational information, and allows us to obtain images of ports and other points of navigational interest."
 

Mark Lenci, Owner
Sunflower, 53-ft Beneteau Oceanis


“The ability to facilitate reliable, effective, and speedy Internet communications is an absolute necessity on our yacht and it eluded us until we went with mini-VSAT Broadband.”

 

Garrath Getley, Captain
Paradigm, 115-ft Benetti 115


"I think it’s a very big part of the guest experience while on the boat that we have the ability to communicate. KVH TracPhone was our first choice."

 

Bob Hansen, Owner
Island Heiress, 145-ft Cheoy Lee
