Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get reception on a satellite phone?
- You must be outside, with a clear view of the sky. Buildings will interrupt the signal so make sure you are away from obstructions. Once you turn the phone on, it will start searching for service. Once connected the phone will register to the network and after that it is ready to place and receive calls.

Will I get a reception anywhere in the world?
Yes. As long as you have a clear view of the sky and your satellite phone registers, you will have service and place calls from anywhere in the world. 

What happens if I go over my rental's prepaid bundled minutes?
- We keep every phone active whether or not additional bundled minutes are purchased. If you use more minutes than you prepay, you will just be charged the regular rate for additional minutes. The phone never shuts off and we never interrupt service.

How long does the satellite phone battery last?
Each satellite phone rental comes with two fully charged batteries. Battery life will approximate 3.5 hours talk time and 19 hours of stand by. If phone is powered on only when placing a call, a battery can last up to a week.

How fast are satellite internet rental units?
Satellite internet terminals (BGAN) start with speeds of 200kbps up to 650kbps and greater. The new Inmarsat Global Express network allows us speeds up to 4mbps upload and 4mbps download through a portable GX terminal

Are satellite internet units fast enough for live streaming?
Yes. The Explorer 710 BGAN is capable of live streaming at 650kbps. Cobham GX 5075 is capable of live streaming at up to 4mbps.

Are satellite internet rental units static or mobile?

Do satellite phones work everywhere?

Satellite phones work everywhere around the globe with exception of the poles. Our reliable network connection operates over global geostationary satellites that will be operational into the 2020s. This provides significantly less possibility of call dropping.

The primary advantage of a satellite phone is that it works in areas of the globe that your average cell phone does not. Satellite phones do not rely on land networks and cell phone towers that often lose signals. On the contrary, satellite phones directly connect to the satellites that orbit the earth. The concept is similar to GPS (global positioning satellite), which is a common feature in most cell phones today. Except, instead of just determining your location on the globe, a satellite phone allows you to make calls and transfer data.

A satellite phone solves the problem of receiving coverage almost anywhere in the world. Be mindful that satellite phones should be in a clear line of sight to the satellites for them to operate as expected. This means that the antenna on the satellite phone should be outdoors and not blocked by solid objects that would obstruct this line of sight.

Satellite network coverage, reliability, voice quality, and service costs can vary . To help you select the right phone, chat with one of our online experts today!
