Iridium Go! Is Global and Easy to Use

Supported by Iridium, the world’s furthest-reaching satellite network, Iridium GO! is small enough to fit in your pocket, yet powerful enough to keep you connected when you’re beyond the range of terrestrial networks.

How It Works:

Simply flip up the antenna and the Iridium GO! will automatically turn on—quickly connecting to the Iridium Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellite network. Once connected, the Iridium GO! creates a Wi-Fi satellite hotspot with a 100-foot (30 metre) radius.

You then pair your smartphone or tablet the Iridium GO! WiFi signal, and use the Iridium GO! App (on your mobile device) as the primary user-interface.

Up to five mobile devices can connect to the Iridium GO! at the same time (via the Iridium GO! App), but only one can be used to make a phone call at any given time.

Can I Use the Iridium GO! to browse the Internet?

Realistically, no. While the Iridium GO! can theoretically be used for web-browsing, the Iridium satellite network does not offer high speed data—it is simply too slow to make Internet browsing enjoyable, effective or worthwhile—so we do not recommend it.

Can I Use the Iridium GO! For Email?

Yes. There are two ways to do this—both of them rely of specific third party apps that compress data information for faster email message transfers:

    • Iridium Mail & Web Application (Free App):
      • You must register for a specific “” email address.
      • You cannot access your existing work and personal email accounts with this app.
      • All email activity is done through your “” ” email address.
    • Ocens OneMail (App with paid service):
      • You can access your existing work and personal email accounts with this app and service.
      • Supports most IMAP services such Gmail,Yahoo, AOL, Hotmail, icloud/mac/, as well as the primarily business-based MS Exchange-based mail services! In fact, OneMail supports so many IMAP mail services in version 2 we can’t list them all.
      • Use OneMail to quickly check the mail directed to your personal or business mail service, your ‘target’ mail account, from any point on earth.

Take it anywhere

Iridium GO!’s portable, battery operated, and rugged design makes it easy to take everywhere.

Dust-proof, shock-resistant and jet-water resistant, it features military-grade durability (MIL-STD 810F) and has an ingress protection rating of IP65.

Stow it in your pocket, backpack or briefcase, or mount it in your vehicle—whether that’s a truck, boat, airplane, or all-terrain vehicle. The Iridium GO! will keep you connected wherever your work or adventures will take you.
