With the tap of a button using the GigSky app, offshore workers, anglers and boaters can enjoy Tampnet’s offshore LTE coverage in both the Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea.

GigSky, the leading mobile app for global cellular connectivity on eSIM-enabled iOS and Android devices, today announced a unique addition to its 190 country coverage: offshore LTE coverage for the western half of the Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea. Working with Tampnet, the world’s largest offshore high-compacity communications network, GigSky now provides over 80,000 square miles (210,000 square kilometers) of offshore coverage.

Unique short term data plans
Despite the significant amount of travel to these regions, connectivity options are rather limited – typically consisting of expensive telco and/or satellite coverage, or simply leaving individuals with no coverage at all. GigSky’s unique short-term data plans offer a new solution for offshore workers, fishermen, and recreational boaters.

A user simply downloads the GigSky app, selects a data plan for the Gulf of Mexico or the North Sea, and connects to LTE on the spot. These commitment-free, a-la-carte data plans provide a hassle-free approach to staying connected – for just the right amount of time.

“We are very excited to finally solve the problem of limited connectivity that many people working in these regions have felt over the years,” says Ravi Rishy-Maharaj, Founder & CEO of GigSky. “In partnering with Tampnet, the market leader in offshore communications, we’re confident that we can deliver a flawless service in a familiar and easy to use format.”

“Tampnet is thrilled to partner with Gigsky, making it easy and fast to connect to our high speed low latency offshore network», says Per Helge Svensson, CEO of Tampnet.
