- Inmarsat Isatphone Pro Review Review by Canada Satellite Reviews
Quality Value Price Rating
Pro - Attractive price point: at half the price its only competitor (Iridium) in North America and low airtime rates the Isatphone offers great value.
Con - Limited coverage: With only 2 satellites covering the Americas (1 over Hawaii and 1 over the west coast of Africa) the phone in unreliable in the Canadian north. As well, you need direct line of sight to one of these 2 satellites, so the phone is typically useless in mountainous areas.
Conclusion - while the phone offers excellent value and coverage in areas near the equator, the phone is of very limited use in northern parts of Canada and as such can not be considered a reliable lifeline in these areas. (Posted on 2013-10-20)
