MOBILE PHONES on ships are not a problem and several cruise companies are now offering (expensive satellite) connections through passenger's own mobile phone.
Brittany Ferries has now taken the same route (at competitive prices) to allow customers to make and receive calls as they cross the Channel to France. This was planned before the current air travel crisis.
Brittany Ferries is the largest operator on the western channel, with five routes to France and one to Spain and the most modern fleet on the Channel. Also on the mobile technology front the South East of England has launched a major campaign to advance wi-fi technology and drive commercial success throughout the region through a more widespread availability of wireless broadband.
The Broadband East Sussex Partnership, one of nine sub-regional broadband partnerships in the South East, is the first to complete a network of hotspots that ensures that visitors to and residents of the region will never be more than a ten minute drive or five mile radius of a high speed wireless broadband connection.
