FAQ

A:
Ideally, you should install the TracPhone LTE-1 outside the typical RF radar emissions elevation of -15 degrees to +15 degrees and at least 3 ft away. Never place the antenna in the direct beam of the radar, regardless of distance to avoid damage to the antenna or performance impairment. See the installation manual for complete details.
A:
Yes. Simply download the secure KVH LTE Manager app from the Apple iOS App Store and the Google Play Store. The data usage screen will show you your daily use. You can also turn on alerts to be sent to you when you reach different milestones in your data plan (e.g., you’ve used 50% of your monthly data). Plus, these alerts can be configured to be sent via email and/or text message.
A:
Not directly but you can if you use Wi-Fi calling or an app like Skype, WhatsApp, or FaceTime that supports voice calls on your mobile device. While the TracPhone LTE-1 uses cellular LTE service, it is not a phone. However, its broadband connections support the use of the same mobile apps you use to connect with family, friends, and the office on shore via data connections.
A:
Absolutely! KVH has designed the TracPhone LTE-1 offering with seasonal boaters in mind, as we know that there are many parts of the country where people just can’t get on the water year-round. There is no minimum contract or commitment, and you can suspend your service for only $9.99 per month.
A:
Absolutely, there’s no restriction on vessel type.
