iSavi iSatHub Satellite WiFi HotSpot

The iSavi iSatHub Inmarsat Satellite Wi-Fi Hotspot runs on the Inmarsat satellite network and provides your devices with a 384 kbps internet connection.

Being a device that runs on the Inmarsat network the iSatHub will provide you with mobile satellite internet anywhere on land except the polar regions.

The iSavi iSatHub Inmarsat Satellite Wi-Fi Hotspot is manufactured by a Singaporean company called AddValue and is aimed at the more price conscious buyer.

Satellite wi-fi hotspots provide you with mobile satellite internet by creating a wireless link between the satellite network and your Windows, Apple, and Android devices.

In addition to providing mobile satellite internet connectivity the iSavi iSatHub Inmarsat Satellite Wi-Fi Hotspot can also be used for making satellite voice calls.

The free iSatHub apps that are available in your favourite app stores helps you establish the satellite connection of your iSatHub and make voice calls.

Ashbury SatCom offers a free firewall that can on request be configured to restrict certain types of traffic from your iSatHub to minimise your airtime usage.

  1. Craig Airey

    So I was one of the lucky customers to have received my Isathub before the official launch date. It takes a while to get your mind around how these devices work but they’re really brilliant. I have an app on my Android that controls the Isathub, gets it to establish a satellite internet connection and then passes that connection to my Android via WiFi so that my android can use the internet anywhere on earth. It works with my windows laptop too and the speeds are very impressive. Simple and easy to use. Oh and the airtime packages from Ashbury are by far the best I have found anywherte.

    After the initial start-up problems were fixed the IsatHub device worked perfectly well. I was very impressed with it and have recommended to my colleagues that we continue to use it in future. Thank you very much for your support whilst I was away. Neranjan Dickson | Complex Information Technology Manager

    The isat hub allows us to keep in contact with our office and check on family and friends while “off the grid” (out of mobile phone coverage). After the initial setup it takes less than five minutes to set up and start communicating. All apps on our Android phones work well through the hub. We use WhatsApp to send messages and the isat app to make calls – call quality is not great but it is okay and better than landlines in some remote parts of Southern Africa. When travelling even in Kruger Park cell coverage is not everywhere and the hub enables one to call from anywhere should help be needed. We highly recommend the isat hub, especially for the data capabilities. Ashbury SatCom directors have always been available and helpful, always ready to answer questions and give advice.

    I used my hub extensively in very remote locations in Namib desert etc. No problems at all, we connected several different iphones, androids etc. to it and it worked without a glitch. Used the isat app to make calls, though not as clear as a Satphone, it was clear enough and worked well. Easy to operate, very usefull.
