Our History

By the summer of 2018, Michael Small and Anand Chari had dedicated a decade to pioneering inflight internet, only to find that the service was slow and expensive, hard to log on to, and the technology was difficult to understand. But, they saw that all that would change in the next decade. The launch of new satellites and the deployment of 5G technology would make mobile internet much faster and more affordable even in the most remote geographies. New digital platforms would make the service easier to use for customers and more efficient and globally scalable for company operations. Software algorithms would seamlessly select the right network for the customer. So Michael and Anand decided to give it another go ‐ this time on water, rather than in air. K4 Mobility was founded in August 2018.
