Should you rent Iridium or BGAN?

Most people rent Iridium satellite phones for a one-time need such as a hunting or vacation trip.  A satellite phone is especially relevant if you are traveling to a remote location like Alaska where cellular communication is unavailable.  Sometimes, it can be critical to make a phone call because of a health emergency.  Usually an Iridium 9555 handset is the best choice.  First, it is exceptionally easy to use.   Also, rentals as short as 7 days are available with no airtime commitment.  Some people need a more sophisticated product that can support email or web browsing.  In this case, we recommend the EXPLORER 510 BGAN terminal.  Read more here.

New Russian BGAN coverage

As of July 12, 2016, Inmarsat created a new MEAS region covering the Middle East and Asia.  The new coverage region is outlined in red below.   Furthermore, Russian BGAN users operating on the MEAS satellite will use the SAS in Moscow that was built by Morviazsputnik.  The new SAS will route all MEAS traffic originating or terminating in Russia.  Inmarsat BGAN and FleetBroadband terminals inside Russian territories must select the MEAS region.  Because of technical issues with the terminal implementation, Inmarsat Aero terminals operating over Russia are not required to select the MEAS region.  Read more here
