TAMPA, Fla. — Maritime connectivity specialist Marlink will offer Starlink to its customers as SpaceX’s broadband service turns to partners to expand beyond the consumer market.

Marlink and OmniAccess, its division focusing on high-end superyachts and boutique cruise lines, said Sept. 22 they have become “authorized Starlink integrators” for maritime and enterprise customers.

The agreement combines connectivity from Starlink’s low Earth orbit constellation with terrestrial networks and capacity the service providers lease from commercial satellites in geostationary orbit.

“Adding Starlink to its offerings will bring a new dimension of connectivity to Marlink’s global customer base,” SpaceX vice president of Starlink sales Jonathan Hofeller said in a statement.

“This low-latency, high-bandwidth broadband experience will allow enterprise and maritime customers to manage their remote businesses more efficiently than ever before.”

SpaceX had initially focused on selling Starlink directly to customers since it launched early services about two years ago that targeted the consumer market.

Speaking during World Satellite Business Week Sept. 13, Hofeller said SpaceX is exploring international partnership opportunities after introducing services for enterprise and maritime customers earlier this year.

That same day, remote communications provider Speedcast announced it had become the first company to sign a distribution deal to offer Starlink to its enterprise and maritime customers.
