Customers travelling to the Isle of Wight will soon have access to high-speed broadband services on the ferry.

UK fixed and wireless broadband provider Moovera has been chosen to deliver the services, which will be available on ships leaving the mainland ports of Lymington and Portsmouth.

As well as offering access to the internet at "multi-megabit" speeds, Moovera will also be providing the crew with real-time GPS tracking of the ships as they make their journeys to and from the Isle of Wight.

Commenting on the development, Jim Baker, founder and chief executive officer of Moovera, said: "[Ferry operator] Wightlink's deployment on passenger ferries is the largest of its kind in the UK to date and creates a solid platform for a host of vessel and passenger-oriented services in the future."

Moovera specialises in delivering high-speed internet services to transport vehicles. It also announced last month that passengers on Scotland's cross-Forth express coach services can now access high-speed WiFi broadband while travelling along the route.
