Iridium has a fairly slow 2.4 kbps data rate which is suitable for light email communications with attachments under 100 KB in size. Email requires our optional Satellite Email Kit which includes a special email account and an email app for use with your iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows 7/XP computer, or Macintosh computer. IMPORTANT: Iridium 2.4 kbps data is not suitable for web browsing or broadband applications like Skype or video.
