KVH recently debuted the Tracphone V7-HTS, one of the most affordable and reliable VSAT hardware solution available for boaters. The V7-HTS provides blazing fast speeds of up to 10/3 Mbps download/upload rates. This means smaller vessels now have the means to stream HD content or video chat with friends and family—allowing them to enjoy the Internet as they would at home.
