OmniAccess was founded in Palma de Mallorca in 2001 as a Wifi/Wimax provider for superyachts in several Ports in Palma and the Mediterranean. The company’s roots in networking and IT lead to its venture in to LAN services whilst still providing superyachts with WAN solutions. Our close relationship with our clients and new satellite broadband technology lead to VSAT service provisioning. After a few years of operating managed VSAT networks our first teleport went live in 2009, following our strong principles of truly end-to-end control we continued to grow our own infrastructure.

We are located on the island of Mallorca, in the heart of the Mediterranean. In addition to being a major yachting hub, Mallorca offers ideal conditions for satellite earth stations. Our Teleport location benefits from over 300 days of sunshine per year, below average precipitation and quickly overpassing weather fronts, making weather related outages very rare. Our southerly location allows us to uplink to numerous additional satellites unlike other Teleports located further North, allowing for further redundancy and flexibility in booking satellite capacity.
