Home Zone Region Definitions*
The Monthly Plans and Global Prepaid Plans presented above have global coverage except for a short list of countries that have opted-out of Iridium coverage. The Regional Prepaid Plans presented above provide service in a geographically-restricted Home Zone Region. There is a small percentage of instances where the geographic restriction will extend or retract from the Home Zone Region described here because the Iridium system interprets the call as originating from outside the designated Home Zone Region, and service availability is not guaranteed in these instances.
- Alaska-Canada Region (also called the Northern Lights region) covers the mainland of Alaska and Canada and 12-nautical miles into the associated coastal waters.

Iridium GO! Plans
These plans are for use with Iridium GO! Wi-Fi Hotspots. Both prepaid and postpaid Iridium GO! plans are available. These plans have low SMS messaging costs. Some Iridium GO! plans also offer unlimited SMS messaging or unlimited Iridium Direct Internet Data services for a fixed monthly fee which are obviously very economical for high data and SMS usage applications such as global GPS tracking, email, and downloading GRIB weather information.
