About K4 Mobility

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.

Our Mission and Vision

The vision for the internet is global and mobile, connecting every person and asset anywhere and everywhere on the planet. Massive investments are underway by many companies around the world in powerful new satellites, sophisticated electronically steerable antenna, and agile software-defined modems. K4’s vision is to be the trusted platform that harnesses rapidly innovating satellite internet technology for maritime and beyond.

Our mission is to build and operate a secure digital platform to harness the power of the internet for maritime, with an inspiring, clear, and convenient technology path for cutting-edge performance now and in the future.
