Buy Satellite WiFi Hotspots

Satellite Wi-Fi Hotspots enable Windows, Apple & Android devices with satellite internet and satellite voice calling abilities, via the use of specialised apps. Note that the Iridium GO is a narrowband device (very slow internet) whereas the Inmarsat Satellite WiFi HotSpots provides much faster internet. However the Inmarsat Satellite WiFi HotSpots only works on land while the Iridium GO works anywhere at land, sea or air. 

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. The lead time for delivery is 3-5 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

Here you can find airtime contracts for all the major Iridium and Inmarsat phones on the market today. Simply sign up for your contract and we carry on billing your card on a monthly basis. Any Inmarsat SIM card from ourselves can easily be reactivated with one of our on-line contracts, however you will always need a new Iridium contract SIM card to start using our Iridium contracts.
