Maybe in the future they'll change it, but actually we don't have any difference about that :whistle:
I found some information on how Gsm onboard ships works on |
It mentions that part of the price charged goes directly to the ship (who installed the equipment onboard...)
I believe that, of course, you might have already seen

Interesting: my understanding is that the ship network gets disconnected automatically, when reaching the costline (to avoid people inland to roam on the ship) through GPS... Amazing, isn't it?
You found 2 really interesting links
Also it's false that GSM on the ship is disconnected automatically... maybe they DON'T want to do it :unsure: in fact it's very easy to find the signal of SIMINN if you are close to the ship in Ancona, Patra and Igoumenitsa... :P
