XWeb Satellite Phone
and Web Browsing
With XWeb you will browse the Internet up to 10x faster over satellite phones. On average XWeb compresses pages by a factor of 3-5x which gives a much improved speed advantage. GMN is able to reduce the time it takes to download typical web images by a factor of up to 10x.
The fast web compression technology reduces typical pictures down to 5% of their original size, dramatically reducing download times. In addition to compressing all the images, XWeb also compresses all text streams, removes obnoxious pop-ads, and removes all backgrounds and animations. Faster download times mean greater savings for you.
It is easy to add XWeb to your XGate Satellite Email service.
NEW! Use XWeb over Optimizer with your Iridium 9555 or Extreme – no USB drivers, WiFi hotspot option and Firewall protection too!
“Once I started using XWeb I use it everywhere. I find it especially useful while on a slow 3G connection on my phone. Web pages load very quickly and I don’t have to worry about running up a big bill.”
— Sebastien, XWeb user in France

Who Uses XWeb?
XWeb is perfect for anyone who needs compression web-browsing over satellite or slow cellular networks. It works on any system, and lets you get more done in less time, all while saving airtime costs.
Recreational cruisers use XWeb in a variety of different ways: over satellite broadband units like Iridium Pilot and FleetBroadband, when connected to slow marina WiFi, and when using foreign 3G cellular networks. Because XWeb works on a flexible subscription basis, it’s perfect for short-term activities like offshore racing and seasonal cruising, coastal cruising and regattas, to more long-term activities like liveaboard cruisers and sailing.
From commercial fishing and maritime transport, to cruise ship internet cafes, XWeb serves all levels of commercial maritime activity. Passengers use XWeb while on arctic cruises, fishermen use XWeb during the fishing season to check fishing grounds and weather information, and large oil platforms deploy XWeb to their workers for crew welfare purposes.
Hikers and Expeditions
XWeb is perfect for those traveling in remote locations with satellite broadband units like BGAN. XWeb can be used with units like Iridium GO! and Globalstar satellite devices, but only small, textual-based web-pages should be loaded. Users in RV parks, camp grounds, and hunting lodges use XWeb to speed up slow WiFi and cell connections.
Want to be connected in the sky? Using XWeb in tandem with onboard WiFi Internet speeds up your connection and makes the most out of your MB allotment. If using a satellite broadband terminal on the airplane, XWeb increasings your speed and airtime savings by 3 to 5 times.
Remote workers like offshore oil rigs and exploration expeditions use XWeb to speed up slow Internet connections and improve crew and worker welfare. Hospitals, ambulance groups, insurance adjusters and others in the first responder industry find XWeb to be unparalleled for keeping in contact during crises. We provide service to many levels of government, including the Coast Guard, Police, and research divisions.
Get the most out of XWeb by using it in tandem with RedPort Optimizer. Optimizer’s powerful firewall blocks all traffic but XGate or XWeb, making the most out of your Internet connection, whether satellite, land-Internet, or 3G cellular.
XWeb works excellently with the RedPort Halo system. The Halo system captures long range WiFI signals and boosts them back to you – say, on your boat.
Because the WiFi at marinas and other public hotspots can be very slow, XWeb can accelerate your speeds so that you’re getting optimal performance, even on slow local WiFi networks.
