Iridium satellite plans enable Iridium phones and devices to work with the Iridium satellite network. It provides pole-to-pole coverage with a sophisticated constellation of Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. This improves transmission paths, latency, and broadcast signals.
Depending on where you will be using satellite communication, you can get Iridium plans for Canada, Africa, North America, Latin America, or the Iridium Northern Lights plan. Choose any global or maritime cover to stay connected from any location in the world.
When to use Satellite
Satellite communications are independent of terrestrial networks and advanced satellite technology has helped us overcome physical challenges by communicating upwards.
So, if you want to be prepared for severe weather or war disasters, or you’re planning to visit an isolated region that doesn’t have any communication infrastructure then satellite is the best option to stay connected to the rest of the world.
