Whatever your reason for travelling, in today’s busy world, communication is critical. So what happens when you pull out your trusty mobile phone and see the dreaded no signal? This is where satellite phones (sat phones) deliver the answer.
Unlike traditional mobile phones, which rely on a signal using local infrastructure, satellite phones, as the name would imply, receive their signal direct from satellites, allowing them to operate globally and in the most remote regions in the world. Using a satellite phone can also allow you to take advantage of more affordable call options too, often offering better value than traditional mobile operators in many countries.
Examples of utility:
• Adventurous exploration/projects?
• Exotic holiday?
• Important business trip?
• Government travel?
• Educational Trips in remote regions?
• Business Continuity?
