Satellite phone and wi-fi rentals for remote operations and emergency situations

Satellite airtime works much in the same way as your mobile phone, you can choose a monthly contract option (postpaid service), or you can buy top-up vouchers (prepaid service).  

Satellite phone or wi-fi terminal rentals can often be a cost-effective alternative to purchasing expensive equipment for short term usage, or from paying high GSM roaming data charges.

Personal use

Satellite phones and wi-fi hotspots are available to rent and allow us to venture into uncharted territory while still being able to contact help in the event of an emergency, or just to stay in touch with home.

Beyond that, family and friends know they can still contact you when needed.  It is reassuring to know someone is just a phone call away if/when the need arises. Satellite phones allow both inbound and outbound calls and text messaging. 

Some devices, such as the Iridium Go! and Thuraya SatSleeve+ have the ability to link to your normal smartphone and therefore provide data.  Additionally, a satellite phone can be used for GPS tracking as well as sending SOS messages for emergency situations.

Commercial use

Many commercial users require reliable communications when working on short-term projects in remote areas. Rentals provide limited project expenditure whilst providing safety-critical communications and data transfer when other methods of communications are unreliable or non-existent.

We provide long or short term rental services to all market sectors including:

  • emergency rescue/humanitarian aid teams
  • mining/oil & gas projects
  • military requirements
  • journalists/broadcasters
  • personal use

Please contact us to discuss your requirements and we can advise on the best equipment and airtime plans to meet your needs and can provide same-day despatch of equipment in most instances.
