Satellite Phones

We provide all Handheld Global Satellite Phone sales, and Satellite Networks like Iridium, Inmarsat, & Thuraya. To help you with choosing between satellite phones & network coverage we have a helpful satphone comparison chart & review of all the most popular types w/ all stats needed to make your decision so you can pick between your choices of Global SatPhones that are best for your area of use, type of use, & more.

Not all satellite networks provide the same type of global satellite service connection so we have a satellite phone comparisson chart & review table to help you by first selecting the satcom network that has the features you need, then find the satellite phone that gives you the features of what your looking for.

Remember that this satphone and network review chart only provides some of the most popular satellite phones, and newer satellite wifi hotspot satphone devices. There are other types of satellite phones besides these on the chart, and some of which that might be better for things such as Military use like the Iridium 9505A. So feel free to let our support technicians help you over the phone or research our website to see which satphone & network is going to work best for you.
