Since 1996, we’ve helped thousands of customers stay connected and safe as they work or travel around Australia and throughout the world.

We’ve been an Inmarsat and Iridium service provider for more than 15 years and we’re proud to be one of the last independent satellite service providers in Australia. No third party antics (we are not a “dealer”), no contracts, no rubbish, no BS! You get honest advice based on 23 years of industry experience, our full 24/7 support with immediate call to action and real value!

WHAT is a satellite phone and WHY do I need one 🤷🏻‍♀️??

A satellite phone is a compact, portable device that connects to worldwide, orbiting satellites allowing voice calls and text messaging from virtually anywhere in the world! Some more advanced phones even cater for email, data, SOS and tracking meaning that when your smartphone runs out of signal, you can still be 100% in touch, connected and safe! 📡 

Whilst a PLB/Epirb, SPOT, InReach, etc. all work well and have their place in the market (we sell and support them too), a satellite phone, just like your mobile phone, provides full two way communication which is extremely important in situations where a voice on the other end of the phone is critical! 

The person on the end of the line could be providing medical advice & assistance that could save someone’s life… 

Maybe it means diagnosing & repairing a fault on your vehicle over the phone with help from a friend or trusted mechanic, allowing you to drive away, avoiding a costly tow fee… 

At the end of the day, two way communication via voice or text covers all basis – a lifeline, a real person on the other end to help in all situations. 

What’s your next adventure? Where’s your next project – ARE YOU PREPARED?
