How fast is MPDS over Inmarsat Fleet F55 and F77?
The MPDS channel is designed for on-line connectivity where a high-speed connection is not a key requirement. As with the Global Area Network service, this service is provided initially at an undefined bit-rate. Speed therefore depends on the number of users accessing the bearer at any one time. As and when required, the network will release new channels for usage, dependent on demand levels. As billing is no longer time-related, this is purely a user experience issue.
