Inmarsat supplied its FleetBroadband solution to the Plastiki, which allowed the crew to keep in touch with Plastiki mission control via voice and data services. FleetBroadband is a dedicated maritime broadband-based communications service and it can supply fax, SMS, and high-speed broadband connectivity. In addition to keeping in touch with mission control, the Plastiki crew were also able to Skype with family members, undertake media interviews and appear in video conferences with students in classrooms. Of course, emergency systems and up to date weather information was also one of the boons of the Inmarsat technology. When describing the FleetBroadband solution at the Plastiki event in Sydney's Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour, Dave de Rothschild amused the crowd by saying he'd rather use the Internet on the boat rather than the slow connection in the building.
