Ask A BGAN Service Expert
Do you require a BGAN service plan that never suspends but has a fixed cost for using unlimited Internet? Ground Control is pleased to introduce BGAN GigaMax service that takes out the posibility of run-away BGAN bills. When service is really needed, such as an emergency backup communication link, the most that can be charged in any one month is 1,000 Megabyges of usage. Over that is unlimited and free to any BGAN terminal worldwide for the remainder of the month.

Similar to cellphones, a BGAN terminal can only operate with an active BGAN SIM card inserted into the SIM slot on the terminal. If you purchase a BGAN terminal with service from us, we'll activate, configure and test the system to make sure it's fully operational before we ship it out. More on BGAN SIM cards

With Prepaid service, you are purchasing a set number of Megabytes/Gigabytes that can be transferred over the course of the valid period. All Megabytes will be available until they are used, or the valid period expires. Refilling or "Topping-Up" a PrePaid plan may happen at any time by emailing us or using this BGAN TopUp Page.
