FAQ

A:

Only FX plans are subject to BMC.  There are no protocol, application restrictions or speed controls for OP and Metered plans, unless you choose to activate the background data management option, which directs "bulk transfer" (e.g., software updates) and "network storage" (e.g., syncing with Apple iCloud, Google Drive, or Dropbox) applications into a 16 Kbps "trickle" channel to help minimize unintended data use.

A:

Yes. The myKVH Portal and mini-VSAT Manager suite of tools includes a customizable alert tool. It allows you to set particular data use triggers that, when reached, will result in an email alert, an SMS text alert, or both being sent to you or anyone else you designate. For example, you can set triggers to notify you when 50%, 80%, and 100% of the monthly data has been consumed.

A:

You bet! The enhanced Voice over IP (VoIP) is separate from the data stream so that no matter how busy the data connection gets, your voice calls are always crystal clear.

A:

Yes. Please contact KVH Sales for details.

A:
Definitely! You can have up to five virtual numbers, enabling you to provide “local” numbers for your contacts in different states or countries to call.

KVH OneCare Global Support Program

Broadband connectivity at sea represents a vital investment and enables you and your guests to get the most out of your time on the water. KVH OneCare Global Support is a comprehensive array of service offerings, all designed to leverage your investment in our satellite network technology to its fullest. KVH OneCare spans the entire lifecycle of your mini-VSAT Broadband solution, from design and selection of the best possible solution, to the smooth implementation of that solution, and post-deployment services and support to maximize long-term performance.

Global Static IP Addresses

KVH has established a global private terrestrial network that links all mini-VSAT Broadband teleports worldwide. This approach enables us to provide substantially more robust malware and threat detection along with enhanced network security. The network also allows KVH to offer a static IP service providing a single public IP address for your TracPhone V3-HTS no matter where it is operating in the world. This service allows secure addressability of a system on board your boat or yacht from the Internet.

Virtual "Local" Numbers

The mini-VSAT Broadband voice service offers a fantastic cost-saving option – virtual “local” phone numbers. For an additional fee, you may assign up to five virtual local phone numbers to the phone line. Each of these numbers can be set up with a different country code and area/city code, allowing people on shore within those regions to avoid international or long-distance charges when they call you when onboard.

Premium KVH Vessel Tracking Service

Immediate access to up to a year of history specific to your boat or yacht’s track history; latest position and weekly position reports; automatic, secure generation of position reports; in-app purchase only $49 USD per month per vessel.

Iridium Pilot Optional Backup

Available for active mini-VSAT Broadband accounts, Iridium Pilot can be added as a secondary system providing pole-to-pole global coverage for data and voice. The Iridium Pilot hardware must be purchased in addition to selecting an Iridium OpenPort airtime plan. With Iridium Pilot onboard and interfaced with TracPhone V3-HTS for least cost routing, the vessel’s LAN and Wi-Fi networks will automatically switch from TracPhone V3-HTS/mini-VSAT Broadband service to Iridium Pilot/Iridium OpenPort service when needed.
