The new Inmarsat IsatHub service along with its release of the AddValue Wideye iSavi portable WiFi hotspot device has been an excitement in the changing technology of global satellite communication over the last month or two.
However the IsatHub airtime rates have been a mystery up until now, which even at this point with some companies releasing rate plans is actually still not completely factual, but what is known is refreshing to know that the IsatHub Airtime services will be sort of a completely different section of the Inmarsat satellite system giving their new IsatHub devices such as the AddValue Wideye iSavi WiFi Hotpot 3G speeds of around 384 kbps, which is a great middle ground for many different types of demographics out there that have been waiting for something like this at these prices for years.
The prices have not yet been released on our NorthernAxcess website yet due to the possible last minute fine print adjustments in Inmarsats IsatHub Airtime pricing, and plans, but we will release a temporary IsatHub Airtime price point chart this week.
Some of the known IsatHub Airtime pricing plans, structures, and rules are here below as follows; *(These airtime rates and certain terms have been modified since this pre-release blog post.
