Inmarsat BGAN Prepaid Validity
  • Inmarsat recharges carry forward any existing airtime and resets the SIM expiry date to the expiry value of the newly loaded voucher.
  • If you do not recharge before the end of the expiry window, your airtime expires, and you will need to recharge the SIM card in order to use it again.
  • When doing a recharge to prevent expiry of existing airtime, always do this at least 5 days before expiry in case there is a delay with the processing of your recharge.
  • During the checkout process you do have the ability to future-date the loading of your airtime, so there is no reason to leave it for the last moment – you can even do it weeks in advance].
  • BGAN SIM cards from Ashbury never die, so even if it is long after the airtime has expired you can revive the SIM by simply loading a new BGAN prepaid voucher.

Doing BGAN Prepaid Recharges

  • You will receive an email once your order has completed processing, which means that your airtime has been loaded. This typically takes 4 hours during business hours, 72 hours over weekends.
