Which satellite network will suit me best?
Currently Iridium is the only truly global network, offering 100% worldwide coverage. Inmarsat comes close, with near global coverage excluding the poles. We also recommend Iridium over Inmarsat if you intend to make an Atlantic crossing, as Inmarsat’s satellites have weaker coverage mid-Atlantic, as it is the crossover point of two of their satellites’ network areas.
Thuraya offers a reliable coverage over Europe, Central Africa and large parts of Southern Africa, the Middle East, Central and South Asia as well as Australia.
Globalstar offers voice coverage over most land covered areas across the globe and has the best voice quality, plus fast connection to the satellite network, as it has the most modern satellite constellation, making it an ideal network for UK/Europe customers.
