Satellite Phone Service
Telestial satellite phone solutions offer service from industry leading satellite providers including Iridium, Globalstar & Thuraya. While each satellite service provider offers it’s own unique benefits and advantages the best phone for you will ultimately depend on your application and destination (a satellite phone does not always translate into a world phone with global coverage). For your consideration we have listed a brief introductory section on each satellite phone describing the highlights: coverage area, rates and popular features. We recommend that you review all three options in order to find the satellite phone that best suits your needs.
Worldwide GSM Mobile Phones
Afghanistan SIM Card
More service members, DoD Civilians, and contractors are deployed to Afghanistan, other points in the CENTCOM AOR, and even to Africa and Asia. At geographically-separated locations or when based out of primitive locations not on a large military installation, it can be very difficult to stay in touch with family and friends. But, with widespread GSM coverage worldwide, you can purchase a worldwide GSM phone and then insert the appropriate overseas SIM Card and be able to connect from virtually any location worldwide.
Philippines SIM Card
Deploying to ENDURING FREEDOM in the Philippines? The Southern Philippines provinces although rural, still boast excellent GSM cell phone coverage. Consider purchasing a Philippines SIM Card.
Military Satellite Phones
We use the same technology the US Military is using to communicate worldwide while deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Use our Satellite Phones to communicate with your friends and family from any location in the world. We salute our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines are deployed in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM and IRAQI FREEDOM. Purchase a Satellite Phone and stay connected even while on deployment.
If you work, live or travel in areas outside cellular coverage or in areas with inadequate landline service, a satellite phone is for you. Eighty-six percent of the world’s landmass and all of its oceans are in areas with inadequate landline service. A satellite phone addresses these situations by providing coverage in all ocean areas, air routes and all landmasses – even the Poles. Unlike a GSM cell phone a satellite phone offers a communications solution that is independent of location.
Costs are actually more reasonable than you can imagine – but the real benefit is your flexibility in communication – no more standing in long lines at the morale tent or the lone DSN line in the compound. Now, you can call… and you can be reached by family and friends.
