At Global Telesat Communications, we offer Iridium, Inmarsat and Thuraya Satellite Phones, which are ideal for fulfilling voice and SMS requirements, in remote locations. Some of our Satellite Phones provide data services although the speeds are very slow and only suitable for plain text emails. If you are planning on regularly transferring large amounts of data a satellite broadband terminal may be more suitable.
If you are looking to purchase a satellite phone but don't know where to start, our buying guide is here to help. The following information is designed to help you pick the right satellite phone and airtime options for your requirements.
