Satellite Phones

If interested in renting, Hello Anywhere offers 6 types of satellite phone rental solutions ranging from as little as $290/month for a handheld to as much as $1500 for a laptop solution.  With our handheld units, for some of our satellite phones we have available external antennas, data cables & pelican cases.  In a handheld format, we offer the IRIDIUM (worldwide coverage) or the GLOBALSTAR and/or the THURAYA (both have coverage limitations) satellite phone solutions, but their email, internet access & data transmission speed is extremely slow at 2.4 kbps.  However, if transmission speed is important, try INMARSAT MINI-M, M4/GAN or a BGAN laptop satellite phone with speeds of up to 492 kbps.  If you're interested in purchasing, click here for more particulars!

 

Iridium Satellite Phone Rental Packages

The Iridium 9500 handheld unit is ideal as a global communication device, which does not have any coverage limitations as some of the other satellite networks.  It weights only 454 grams/16 ounces and we supply it with 2 batteries, AC charger with universal adaptors, cigarette lighter adaptor & a remote mobile antenna.  Our minimum 1-week rental is $79.95 with additional weeks at $70 or additional days at $14.95.  Airtime charges start at $2.99/minute, but are lowered based on volume & rental period.  All incoming calls are free, but person calling Iridium handset will be charged as if calling internationally.  Unit can also receive SMS text messages (limited to 160 characters), voice mail can be added & data cables are available on a rental basis.

Upgrade option of $50.00 to more compact 9505A model (375 grams/13.2 ounces).

     

  Globalstar Satellite Phone Rental Packages

The Globalstar satellite phone is a great North American solution, but they do have limited coverage issues. They will also work in South America, Europe, Middle East, Southern Africa, East Asia & Oceania, but coverage has to be verified. The Globalstar GSP-1600 offers excellent voice quality & is available on a rental basis with the same options as the Iridium phone.  Again, SMS is available, voice mail & data cables are optional.

     

  Thuraya Satellite Phone Rental Packages

If looking for the smallest satellite handset & traveling within Europe, the Middle East, Africa you may want to consider the THURAYA Hughes 7101 handset. We do have limited supplies and require more time to prepare such satellite phone rental solutions.  Weekly rate is $149.95 with additional weeks at $125, no daily rate & airtime rates starting at $2.99/minute. 

Inmarsat Mini-M, M4/GAN & BGAN Satellite Phone Rental Packages

A Mini-M unit may be rented for as little as $449.95/month with airtime charges to Zone 1 starting at $3.49/minute, but speed is only 2.4 to 4.8 kbps.  However, if transmission speed is critical you can upgrade to renting a M4 unit for $1499.95/month at 56-64 kbps.  If you require even quicker speed (144 kbps), rent a Regional BGAN unit for a minimum period of 12 months at a monthly rate of $249.95/month.  Voice airtime charges may be as low as $1.25/minute, while data transfer depending on chosen plan can range from as low as $4.49/MB to as high as $8.49/MB.
