Customer Base Nears Half the World’s Top 200 Superyachts
MTN Communications (MTN) reinforces its position as one of the leading communications service provider to the world’s Top 200 superyachts. The company also serves one-third of the Top 500 (53 to 180 meters and above). Further solidifying the organisation’s leadership, MTN managing director of yacht services, Derik Wagner, has joined the Boards of the U.S. Superyacht Association (USSA) and International Superyacht Society (ISS).
MTN reported its yacht industry status during the recent Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), October 31-November 4, 2013. Customers increased demand for additional bandwidth on the MTN network by 61 percent over the same period 2012. This increase is a result of planned activity in highly-trafficked regions, particularly in the summer Mediterranean season, as well as winter in the Caribbean and South Pacific. MTN easily met this demand due to its flexibility and robust network offering, ideally suited to this market.
MTN’s continued growth further solidifies its reliable qualities in delivering the speed, throughput and flexible terms demanded by this segment. More than 50 MTN employees are dedicated to the yacht market, including sales, network management, and support and yacht installations. Their job is to ensure each yacht gets delivered exactly what is expected and needed, wherever it is setting sail. These employees are mobile, and ready to travel and join a yacht if the customer requests on-site technical support. The company expects on-going growth and revenues from new offerings in the coming year.
