Which providers would this be?

3mbps on a ship at 5:1 tdma oversubscribed is about 16k a month on c band
and probably about 12k a month on ku if you find someone with good water
coverage (ge23 is a good example of a killer oceanic spacecraft). The auto
stabilized antenna (at least 1.8m but preferably larger up to 3.6)is going
to start at 40k and end at 200 for the giant ones. Then.. You have to find a
provider that doesn't suck. And there are literally 3 in the entire world
that don't completely suck.

I won't get started on pricing for planes.. ;)

These prices are low if it's INMARSAT.  We pay ~$7/minute.  If they have
their own Ku-band (hopefully not as 12-18Ghz has a lot of rain fade) that
seems high.  C-band (4-8Ghz) on ships is much better.  Not a lot of perks
for being bored out at sea for long periods of time.
