Communicate everywhere:

The IsatPhone service is supported by Inmarsat’s global geostationary satellite network, which reaches everywhere on Earth except for the extreme Polar regions.

A unique feature of geo-stationary satellites:

They offer reliable, continuous connectivity once a connection has been made from your location. This means you won’t experience signal drop-outs when using your IsatPhone (as long as you maintain a clear “line-of-sight” to the Inmarsat satellite, your satellite connection will be indefinite)—something that Iridium and Globalstar cannot advertise.

Plus:

  • Pay no roaming charges, since calls are made over a single, global network.
  • Register with the network in under 45 seconds
  • Keep others updated with your GPS coordinates, and receive notification of inbound calls—even when your phone’s antenna is stowed.

Subscribe to an IsatPhone Service Plan

We have standard monthly and prepaid plans to suit different needs and budgets, and we offer custom satellite phone plans for government and corporate clients who activate multiple phones.

IsatPhone Monthly Service Plans

IsatPhone monthly plans are a great choice if you require a reliable, “always-on” satellite service. These plans offer a low monthly rate and some of them include roll-over minute bundles, which let you keep your unused airtime for up to 12 months.

Our monthly IsatPhone plans are postpaid, which means you’re billed at the end of each month. Monthly charges include the basic monthly access fee plus any billable airtime consumed over-and-above the monthly minute bundle.

 IsatPhone Prepaid Service Plans

IsatPhone prepaid airtime plans are great for short-term or seasonal users. Our prepaid plans come with varying bundles of airtime to meet different needs. We offer prepaid plans that are valid for 30 days, 90 days, 6 months and 12 months.

Unlike our Iridium prepaid plans, we are unable to offer roll-over airtime for IsatPhone prepaid services. However, they can all be recharged with more airtime prior to expiry.

Plus:

To ensure your prepaid card never runs out of minutes, we provide an optional automated recharge service. When you opt-in for this complementary service, we automatically recharge your IsatPhone prepaid card when it reaches a set threshold of remaining minutes, or when there are only 1-2 days remaining on the validity period—whichever comes first. Our automated recharge services will charge your credit card each time your IsatPhone prepaid card is recharged.

How to Access IsatPhone Voice & Data Services

Chroma’s IsatPhone voice and data services can be accessed by the IsatPhone 2 satelllite phone.

Please note that while these services will also work on the “IsatPhone Pro satellite phone”, which we do not offer this product, as our initial testing found it to be inferior. However, the IsatPhone 2 is a great device.

IsatPhone Data Service

You may be wondering:

“Will the IsatPhone voice/data service let me surf the web with my IsatPhone 2?”

While the IsatPhone 2 is best used for voice services, it is also possible to use it for email and accessing weather data like GRIB files—but it’s not ideal for web browsing.

Here’s why:

IsatPhone network data speeds are extremely slow. Downloading a single webpage using the IsatPhone service can take hours, not seconds.

If you must access the web, you can improve these download times—but you’ll need to connect your computer to the Internet via an IsatPhone 2 and use special web-optimizing hardware, software and services.

You’ll need:

  • A satellite wi-fi router to generate a WiFi hotspot to connect your computer or smartphone.
  • Satellite-phone email service with compression that will support your computer or tablet
  • A web-accelerator service, which blocks ads, strips out backgrounds, and compresses images and text to improve your download speed by three to five times.
  • To access weather data only, try a specialized weather and data compression service—contact us for details.
Contact us for details

The bottom line, the IsatPhone service provides great voice connectivity that is both reliable and affordable, and it’s a useful tool for low-speed data applications.

Because the IsatPhone service relies on geostationary satellites, which provide continuous coverage, we also highly recommend it for business continuity and emergency management requirements.
