Global Voice Connectivity – Everywhere

Many consider Iridium to be the most reliable satellite phone service for global connectivity. It functions everywhere on Earth, a feature that other satellite networks cannot advertise.

Iridium satellite coverage map-iridium voice services

The Iridium network consists of 66 Low-Earth Orbiting satellites that continuously orbit the Earth, beaming connectivity into nearly every nook and cranny of our planet. It can do this because the satellites are constantly moving. However, because they are constantly moving, long-term connectivity in any given location is not guaranteed.
