Iridium Prepaid Plans

Iridium prepaid airtime plans can be a great value option, as they are slightly cheaper over time than monthly plans. You pay an initial fee for a specific number of minutes that can be consumed over the plan’s validity period. Chroma offers one-, two-, six-, 12- and 24-month Iridium prepaid plans.

Most of Chroma’s Iridium prepaid plans are rechargeable and include rollover minutes, which means that any unused airtime will roll over into the next validity period when the prepaid plan is recharged prior to expiry.

Plus, to avoid the inconvenience of managing your prepaid airtime balance, Chroma provides an automated recharge option. It automatically recharges your Iridium prepaid card when it reaches a set threshold of remaining minutes so that you never run out of airtime. Chroma offers this option as a free benefit to our satellite airtime customers. Your credit card is automatically billed each time your Iridium prepaid airtime card is recharged.

Many corporate customers choose a prepaid plan because it doesn’t impact their monthly operating budget.

Global Voice Connectivity – Everywhere

Many consider Iridium to be the most reliable satellite phone service for global connectivity. It functions everywhere but the extreme polar regions, 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.

How to access Iridium voice services

Chroma’s Iridium voice services are accessed via lightweight and portable satellite phone and hotspot devices designed for use in extreme environments.
