KVH announces that it is now offering free VoIP calls to Turkey and Syria for seafarers, anticipating that this service will be available through the end of February 2023. Seafarers can use their KVH TracNet™hybrid terminals and TracPhone® VSAT-only terminals to connect with family, friends, and loved ones affected by the devastating earthquakes in southeast Turkey, near the border of Syria.
“KVH is proud to stand with other maritime organizations supporting seafarers impacted by the recent earthquakes,” says David Tropp Hag, Vice President of Sales in KVH’s EMEA region. “Our thoughts are with the people impacted by this tragedy and the seafarers who may be far from home and worried about loved ones. We recognize that seafarers are often challenged with communicating at sea and hope that this gesture will provide a means of connecting with friends and family during this troubling time.”
