When you need satellite communications on a short term basis only our rental service is a flexible option with satellite phones, trackers and internet terminals available to rent with a minimum term of just 7 days and charges from just £4 per day.
We like to offer our customers flexibility so our daily charges don't include minutes or messages you might not end up using - if you know you will be using the phone we offer pre-paid minutes from just 80p per minute.
Here at GTC we pride ourselves on customer service and are here to answer your questions on our rental services. Furthermore with then wide range of equipment available here at our offices in Poole we can offer next day delivery within the UK. Need it quicker?! Let us know and we can obtain a same day delivery quote.
We can provide rental services for single users or those in need of multiple phones. We offer phones from Iridium, Inmarsat, Thuraya and Globalstar all of which have benefits depending on which region you are travelling to.
Satellite Phones are great for voice calls, they do have a slow data connection but we do not normally advise using the handsets for this purpose. If you need a data connection please look at Satellite Terminal/WiFi Hotspot Rental below.
One of most exciting satellite phone rentals to date was providing 100 Globalstar phones for use on the UK leg of the Tour De France 2014!
For those just requiring tracking services we offer the popular DeLorme inReach SE. Rental customers get their own MapShare page which allows followers back home to keep track of the user's location and send messages to the device. This device enables the user to send out automatic tracking points as well as custom text and email messages.
While satellite phones are great for voice services the data speeds offered are a little slower than what we are used to these days! If you require email or internet access then a BGAN terminal or WiFi hotspot is the option for you.
BGAN terminals need to connect directly to a laptop while WiFi hotspots pair with your existing smartphone or tablet to provide voice and data services.
