2019: We’ve had Meridian 4G’s technology since early 2015 when Julian was still with CELLweaver and followed him when he left to form Meridian 4G. Over years we’ve relied on Julian’s expertise as well as his technology that without doubt outperforms any other 4G device out there. Very happy with the service, technology stays up-to-date keeping up with changes and improvements by cellular operators.
2016: We’ve tried various other SIM based 4G routers and such onboard Radiant and they all had downsides which outnumbered the benefits. For that reason we were reluctant to try yet another technology at first due to our understanding of GSM networks and how intermittent they can be. Meridian 4G system really impressed us and is the only solution that truly works.
2019: We cruise Europe, Middle East and Indian Ocean and make use of Meridian 4G’s aggregator and signal amplifier technology exclusively while near shore or cruising the coast lines. The aggregator pair provide low latency high speed internet to Owners and Guests with a dedicated aggregator for each.
Motoryachts Nirvana and Barbara cruise together and have an identical Meridian 4G setup onboard.
2019: We subscribed to Meridian’s service following advice of our Chief Engineer who had Meridian’s service onboard his former boat. Quick installation in the middle of the season. We got about 20 miles offshore with our system. Game-changing speed and responsiveness, pages load instantly, guests are super happy! Highly recommend to anyone, support is truly exceptional.
2019: Motor Yacht Joy is a busy dual season commercial charter yacht. She is 70m LOA, 1095gt and launched at Feadship RVL in June 2016.
Joy has a Meridian 4G aggregator device aboard, with world-wide LTE/4G/3G coverage. Meridian 4G also provide support, firmware and data centre resources.
We are very happy indeed with the data speed and connectivity of the system. We have found it very reliable for guest internet provision on particular. System support from Meridian 4G is very fast and effective. Julian himself often taking the lead in answering questions and offering help.
I am very happy to recommend the company and service to potential clients and confirm that we rely on the system and use far less V-SAT data because of it.
2019: We did an extensive research and tried other 4G systems before we found Meridian 4G. The technology exceeded our expectations, performance is solid and stable. Most importantly, when you buy the Meridian you know that you have got your back covered all the time. Julian is not only the founder & CTO but he makes sure that each and every customer is taken proper care of. I highly recommend their product and service.
2019: Julian is a rare find in yachting when it comes to technical expertise, and we can’t recommend his technology enough. He makes 4G work onboard superyachts, and it is not only about the device. He helped us ensure that all parts that matter work together – from antennas being in the right places without blockage to ensuring that our overall IT setup is tuned up for optimal performance.
2019: We got Meridian 4G for almost 1 year now. Plug and play system, good speed and very steady! The service is very reliable and support we get is very responsive. We got help from Julian even to reshape our network, I honestly call him “The Genius”, he is very knowledgeable and more than that very involved. We are thinking to upgrade to the new generation amplifiers and will be with them in the future.
2016: Full HD streams on Apple TV play with zero buffer time. Jetstream plays faultlessly at its highest bitrate (something I have never seen on any other connection). Youtube/Vimeo streams load and play instantly. Even when playing in 4K! The time between hitting enter and a webpage loading is milliseconds as opposed to the normal delay of 3-4 seconds when using VSAT.
