Buzz Marine, the company that brought the Hubba and HubbaX mobile broadband units to the marine world, has added a new unit to its range: the Hubba X4 LTE. This unit can be positioned in the boat’s cabin and will work on 2G, 3G and 4G to provide users with the fastest available connection speeds of up to 100Mb per second. The Hubba X4 LTE also allows users to log-on to individual marina wi-fi systems to save valuable mobile data. In addition, it has a switch-over facility to operate in conjunction with VSAT systems to ensure vessels are connected to the best value network at all times.
Other modifications include a more accessible SIM holder for easier SIM changes when cruising and a web-based remote management system offering a wide range of settings, usage reports, alerts and troubleshooting features which are all expected to be especially attractive to owners of fleets of vessels worldwide.
Steve Smith, Managing Director of Buzz Marine commented: “Buzz Marine is proud to announce the imminent arrival of its successor to the popular Hubba X 3G broadband system for boats, we’ve been developing our 4G system for over a year now. As it becomes increasingly important for both leisure and small commercial boat owners to stay connected while on the water, and to be able to do so at a speed similar to that experienced at home, the Hubba X4 LTE offers an economical solution through utilising 4G networks, 3G networks and even 2G networks to access the best available internet connection which can be easily accessed by PC, laptop, tablet and smartphone.”
The Hubba X4 LTE is fully future-proofed and is designed to take advantage of upgraded transmitters as they come online, which could eventually see all users enjoying connection speeds of up to 100Mb per second. Available from November 2013 – the price is expected to be £1295 ex VAT. Buzz also offers a range of data SIM bundles of up to 128Gb per month.
