BGAN service can be very expensive to transfer data so we've developed the Optimized Laptop that doesn't have any background applications using your valuable Internet service. You take control of what is transferred over ANY network.

These Windows based laptops eliminate all background Apps that use valuable Internet service over BGAN, especially Windows 10 Telemetry and security patches that are next to impossible to shut off. They are also optimized to vastly reduce the amount of data transferred of the data you do transfer using various tools we've learned over the years. Tools such as toggling images and flash videos from appearing in the browser, or downloading only the "headers" of emails, or turning off scripts used in the background of many web pages. Also, new applications that you install won't transfer data unless you authorize them for Internet traffic. These tools easily slash slash 90% to 95% of normal Internet usage, extending your online time by hours... Penciled out, these laptops do pay for themselves in a few hours of use.

BGAN Optimized Laptop
The idea behind the Optimized Laptop is that you are in control of what is transferred over the network, and NOT background applications that are transferring data without your knowledge. Even background events on various websites are in your control. The Optimized Laptop now gives you the control to select what information is to be transferred and then it shows you usage reports on what has been transferred and by what applications. With the high cost of satellite data, this laptop pays for itself quickly.

Final Thoughts
We estimate an Optimized Laptop will reduce Internet traffic to about 5% of all data transferred with normal web browsing. If costs are $5 per Megabyte transferred, and say 1 Megabyte is being transferred every minute, that means the laptop would pay for itself in just over 2.5 hours. Finally, since this is a standard Windows 7 computer, you may install of all of your necessary programs and stay productive anywhere you go.
