Every satellite network has its key advantage. Within its regional coverage area, Thuraya offers the smallest satellite phones available. Coverage is available in Europe, northern and central Africa, the Middle East, central and southeastern Asia, the Indian subcontinent, Japan, and Australia (see Coverage Map below). Thuraya offers a variety of equipment options including handheld satellite phones, the SatSleeve+ hotspot for your smart phone, docking stations for both vehicular and in-building applications, and a high-speed data terminal with an unlimited usage plan. The handheld Thuraya phones offers both 9.6 kbps circuit-switched data and always-on GmPRS packet data. The GmPRS option can achieve 60 kbps down and 15 kbps up (best case). Thuraya IP+ internet terminals reach up to 444 kbps. Please call our staff for more information.
Thuraya SatSleeve is the smartest, fastest and simplest way to transform your iPhone into a satellite phone. Only slightly larger than the iPhone itself, the compact adapter allows you to turn your iPhone into a satellite phone to conduct phone calls and send SMS beyond the coverage of traditional terrestrial networks. Corporate and NGO users, frequent travelers or adventurous explorers, travelling in remote locations can enjoy the use of their own iPhone.
If you have a GSM-cellular capable Thuraya phone such as the HNS-7201, SG-2520, or Thuraya XT DUAL, you will have additional GSM cellular coverage in many countries. Different regional operators charge different rates and some features of the Thuraya phone may not be supported by all GSM operators. As a rule, GSM operators in third world countries charge more for calls than the cost of Thuraya satellite-mode calls.
