Prepaid Satellite Phone Airtime
Here you can top-up Iridium and Inmarsat SIM cards that were supplied by Ashbury SatCom. Note that we can only recharge SIM cards supplied by ourselves, so if we did not supply your SIM card, be sure to add one to your order.
Satellite Phone SIM Cards
Here you can order a new SIM card for the various satellite phones that are on the market today with a lead time of 2 days.
Note that Inmarsat SIM cards from Ashbury never die, so even if it is long after the expiry of your Inmarsat airtime on our SIM card, you can easily revive it by simply doing a top-up elsewhere in our web shop. Iridium SIM cards die 270 days after the expiry of your previous airtime.
Satellite Phone Airtime Contracts
We offer managed airtime contract subscriptions for all Iridium and Inmarsat phones, all of which come with our world-class online management and monitoring features. Simply sign up for your contract and we carry on billing your card on a monthly basis.
Any Inmarsat SIM card supplied by ourselves can easily be reactivated with one of our contract subscriptions – even if it has been deactivated before. However you will always need a new Iridium contract SIM card to start using our Iridium contract subscriptions.
