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, 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 fleet operations 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 your vessels travel

*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.
