Which is the best Inmarsat Plan for you?
Comparing the Inmarsat Standard and Inmarsat Flex Plans:
- Activation Fee: The Inmarsat Standard plan has a one-off $25.00 activation fee. The Inmarsat Flex plan offers the option for a 3 month minimum term, rather than 12 months when you pay a $50 activation fee. Please note if you choose to pay a $50 activation fee, the minimum cost will be three months' access fee + $50 activation fee.
- Anytime SIM Suspension: At any point during your contract you can suspend your SIM and reduce monthly payments to only $5 per month on the Inmarsat Flex Plan. There is no option to suspend your plan on the Inmarsat Standard plan.
- Dedicated Local Number: Customers signed up to the Inmarsat Flex Plan will be assigned a dedicated US or UK phone number and a SIM card free of charge. This results in much lower calling charges, as calls to the handset will charge at the same rate as the network rate, rather than the Satellite Phone rate. Inmarsat Flex customers must select their preference to a US or UK phone number, when completing the pay monthly contract. Customers on the Inmarsat Standard Plan do not have this option.
