Personal use

Satellite phone or Wi-Fi terminal rentals can often be a cost-effective alternative to purchasing expensive equipment for short term usage, or from paying high GSM roaming data charges.

Satellite phones allow both inbound and outbound calls and messaging. Some devices, such as the Iridium Go!, can link to your normal smartphone and therefore provide access to data.
