R/V Atlantis Internet Access at Sea

R/V Atlantis has Internet Access via HiSeasNet and FBB. Internet traffic primarily goes over HSN. Should the HSN antenna become shadowed traffic will automatically go out either of the two FBBs. 

HiSeasNet Access

  • This is a 96kbps link to shore  and a 512kbps link from shore back out to the ship.
  • The shore-to-ship link is shared amongst other HiSeasNet equipped UNOLS ships within the area.
  • Do not plan to be able to download large files or stream any type of media. We also ask that users turn off any Bittorrent software, and any P2P  or cloud software.

FBB Access

  • This link  can be up to 432kbps, but it is a ‘pay per byte’ link.
  • Plans for video conferencing, data transmission to shore, etc. will require special consideration/arrangements prior to the cruise.
