Yes, but that was before the mobile data bubble. Motodrama were only offering phones, at the same cost per call as Inmarsat. I had a long row with them saying that they needed to be cheaper than mobile, and the cellular networks would never get into rural 3rd world, leaving them a massive market place. The network foundered in the same way that the HP slatey thing did. By trying to muscle into an established business, not breaking that business to smithereens.
In the end I took my 30-ship-1200-passenger deal to Inmarsat. The earth terminals were cheaper.
