GTC is excited to announce that two new Inmarsat fixed satellite phone services are now available to buy online at www.globaltelesat.co.uk. The IsatPhone Link (for land use) and FleetPhone (for maritime use) are global fixed satellite phone services based on the award-winning IsatPhone Pro handheld satellite phone. These fixed products offer the same voice, email and low-speed data services as the IsatPhone Pro and come with an external antenna. Cable options are at an extra cost and vary in length from 6m - 31m. The FleetPhone also benefits from the Inmarsat 505 Emergency Calling service - this is a free short code dialling facility that provides direct access to maritime relief. In a time of distress, a seafarer need only dial '505' - selected for its similarity to 'SOS' - to immediately contact a Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centre (MRCC). This service is designed primarily for smaller vessels that do not require GMDSS-compliant equipment. The IsatPhone Link and FleetPhone also work on the same airtime plans as the IsatPhone Pro with both pre-paid and contract options available. Pre-paid vouchers all have a two year validity and contracts start from just $20/month. IsatPhone Link from just £985...buy online now! FleetPhone from just £1,145...buy online now!
