Luxury ISP Services: Everyone loves acronyms and buzz words. It is a great way of coming across sounding intelligent and hip with really having the skill-set to back up either assertion. Station 53's services are so smart, hip, and, even more important, cost-effective that a new acronym just seemed appropriate. The company is a YISP (a yacht Internet service provider). The firm provides global high-speed satellite Internet services at sea and voice over IP (VoIP) to yachts. Its service is quite universal, covering Europe, the USA, the Mediterranean, the UK, the Caribbean and the Middle East. High-speed Internet access is available through Station 53's iDirect platform. The system also works for remote sites and other types of ships too.

Station 53 provides quick access to weather information; telephone calls cost pennies per minutes; and there is no per minute or bandwidth limitations on usage. There also is an unlimited data-transfer allowance. IP access to the Internet enables smooth corporate or network interface, which means faster downloads and quick email transmissions.

This YISP provides a satellite modem and IP router with TCP acceleration. Station 53 analyzes specific needs and handles the installation and set up of the equipment. The service is available to private owners, fleets, individual owners, and businesses. Solutions can be stand-alone configurations or network compatible, and customer care and technical support are available 24/7.

Station 53 is member of the National Marine Electronics Association. The organization claims that it can save yachtsmen thousands of dollars on a monthly basis compared to competing services. So, gathering more info could turn out to be time very well spent.
