What If?


While we’re confident that AgilePlans from KVH will be the ideal connectivity solution for your fleet, we do know that your situation is always evolving, especially in the challenging commercial maritime industry. Vessels may be sold or laid up. Your connectivity needs may change.


What if I sell any of my vessels?


Send the hardware back or just transfer it to the new owner/management company. There is no long-term commitment or contract. It's that easy.

What if I need to lay up some of my fleet?

Choose the affordable VoIP-only Suspension Plan so that your SATCOM is ready to go as soon as the vessels are working again or send the hardware back to KVH and cancel your subscription.

What if I decide I don't like the service?

Send the hardware back. There is no penalty for ending your subscription.

Yes, it really is that easy.


AgilePlans by KVH is designed with that reality in mind. We realize that sometimes, you just need to say “No”. That’s why we also say “No”, as in:

  • NO long-term commitment or contract

  • NO penalty for ending your subscription

  • NO headaches

Just notify KVH, return the hardware to us, and as soon as we receive it, your subscription will be closed. It’s that simple. Get the details.
