GTMaritime is the new name for H2Osatellite
Since 1998, Global Technology has been serving the maritime industry. 6 years ago we rebranded to H2OSatellite, however recent feedback suggests that this never really ‘clicked’ with our market – still being referred to as GT or Global Technology. So we’ve gone ‘back to the future’ and rebranded as GTMaritime.
GTMaritime specialises in providing solutions and services that ensure vessel compliance and business operability 365 days a year, as well as keeping crew in touch with friends and family whilst at sea. Our solutions include e-mail, anti-virus protection and data file transfer, as well as crew communications and welfare solutions.
All of this backed up by a market leading infrastructure and unrivalled 24-hour customer support, every day of the year - provided from offices in the UK and Singapore, and through an established and growing network of resellers and partners around the world.
