Stour Marine is a Telecommunications Provider and Mobile Network Operator, regulated by the UK Telecommunications regulator Ofcom. We provide voice, sms, data and mobile services from the UK and are headquartered in London.
Established in 2006, Stour Marine first began by providing WiFi hotspots within the UK across the British Canal and River Waterways Network.
These WiFi hotspots were provided to cover areas of weak cellular reception, providing reliable access to the Internet and online communication. Our services are deployed using Stour Marine SIM cards which access the traditional WiFi access points.
Stour Marine runs its own WiFi network within a number of Canal marinas within the UK. This service provides its customers with voice and data services via Stour Marine SIM cards. Customers can also access the service using their mobile devices or laptops by accessing the Stour Marine access points within these locations. Stour Marine has access to WiFi roaming partners for its customers when traveling outside of the Stour Marine network coverage area as well as GSM roaming on its SIM cards.
We operate and support an IP based core network facilitating Voice, SMS and Data. Stour Marine over the years has built relationships with network operators across the globe to deliver highly resilient communications links that aggregates our core infrastructure into a single, easily accessible service.
The addition of a portfolio of wholesale communications services means Stour Marine can offer a wider range of solutions and services to its growing customer base. Furthermore, unlike other telecommunications providers who posses UK +447 numbers, all allocated Stour Marine UK mobile numbers provided are recognised by all other UK carriers as in-bundle. Stour Marine fully supports Mobile Number Portability within the UK.
Stour Marine is a forward thinking company moving into new markets as they appear. It is this 'can do' attitude that allows our customers to stay ahead in the ever changing communications world.
