The AST Group specialise in providing satellite communications equipment, airtime, and essential safety solutions such as tracking which have been designed for the consumer market.
With many small factor handsets, wi-fi hotspots and hubs available today, whether it be for emergency use or social media on the move, satellite technology is often a cheaper alternative to expensive GSM roaming charges.
We can offer the best advice possible, rental equipment and prepaid airtime for this market sector, and are experts in global communications and safety whilst travelling.
Many organised events such as the Mongol Derby and Madison Mountaineering rely on efficient satellite and radio communications to enable organisation of logistics and safety of personnel.
We also supply survival training companies such as Elite Survival Training with satellite communications equipment for expeditions and courses in some of the world's most challenging environments.
Off the beaten track holidays
Families travelling in remote areas, such as Australia, the USA and Africa often rent satellite phones for safety-critical communications whilst on-the-move. Satellite wi-fi hotspots, such as the Iridium Go!, provide access to the internet for social media and other information, such as banking, maps and weather. Although do not expect the speeds you would gain at home - and do expect to pay a premium for data usage.
