Telenor and Red Bull unite to offer affordable maritime data packages

The app-based eSIM allows passengers from any location to browse the internet worldwide, without the worry of bill shocks
Telenor Maritime and Red Bull Mobile signed an agreement that allows Red Bull MOBILE to offer fixed-price data plans to cruise passengers roaming into the Telenor Maritime mobile network while in international waters.

There are two fixed-price maritime data packages to choose from: 250 MB for €5, and 1 GB for €15. 

Purchasing the app 

Passengers download the Red Bull MOBILE eSIM app and purchase the Maritime package. 

An eSIM is a digital SIM that replaces or complements the physical, removable SIM card in mobile phones and devices. A device can usually have multiple eSIMs installed, allowing the user to switch between different cellular plans. 

The app is available for download at Apple and Google app store, allowing travellers to purchase the data package in advance of sailing.  

Telenor Maritime network is available on over 150 ships around the world, serving more than 30,000 passengers daily.
