Major investment in faster WiFi at Plymouth marina

Boat owners visiting Plymouth’s award-winning marina in Sutton Harbour can now enjoy vastly improved WiFi services during their stay.

The Marina at Sutton Harbour has made a substantial financial investment in its technology to improve wireless broadband Internet services available to berth holders at the 5 Gold Anchor-rated facility based in the historic heart of Plymouth.

Now, 4Star and 5Star berth holders staying at the marina can access the free wireless Internet via smartphones, tablets or laptops and enjoy download speeds with the potential to reach a maximum capacity of 190 megabits per second (mbps).

Mark Brimacombe, Manager of The Marina at Sutton Harbour, said: “As well as visiting social media sites or browsing the Internet, today our berth holders increasingly want to access online streaming services, such as Netflix, to watch TV shows or films. 

“As a result, it was vital that we invested in improving the quality of the WiFi service we offered to our 4Star and 5Star berth holders, to increase download speeds and make that possible, and ensure that people coming to stay in Sutton Harbour’s 5 Gold Anchor Marina have access to fast, effective Internet services when those are included as part of their berthing package.”

The Marina at Sutton Harbour has earned international acclaim for its first-class facilities and superior customer service, combined with a prized, highly secure location within the sheltered harbour, which is protected by lock gates. Sutton Harbour is also adjacent to the vibrant, historic Barbican quarter, offering a wealth of restaurants, cafes, bars and visitor attractions.

Flexible berths are available at the marina for motor and sailing vessels up to 25 metres in length.

Annual berthing starts from £269 per metre for the year April 1st 2017 to March 31st 2018. There are also summer berthing packages available, from as little as £201.75 per metre from April 1st to October 31st.
