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? BGAN terminals need to be static on a solid surface pointing to a satellite. Mobile BGAN terminals can be mounted on a vehicle and receive good signal at speeds up to 130mph. Marine satellite internet terminals are mobile with automatic satellite tracking.
