  BGAN Rental Policies
   The maximum rental period on some plans is 90 days.
   Incoming voice calls are free to subscriber, but the calling party will be charged at their provider's rates to call to your satellite phone.
   Voice calls over BGAN service are billed per minute and do not use available Megabytes, so there is no data usage cost when calling.
   All rental plans may purchase more Megabytes at listed overage rates, or TopUp with any plan offered.
   There is a late fee of $100 if the terminal is received by Ground Control more than one day late.
   Unused BGAN service at the end of the rental period is not refundable.
   BGAN terminals operate in any country with the 4 Inmarsat satellites without any plan changes. No license or certification required.
   Returned rental equipment must be operational. Renter is responsible for repairs, or for replacing inoperable or lost equipment.
   Rental days begin on day of shipping and end upon Ground Control receiving the rented equipment.
