  Iridium GO! Alternatives - If Internet Service Is Required
Iridium GO Alternatives
While the Iridium GO is good for voice calling, SMS texting and small emails, Internet connectivity is very limited. If a portalbe high-speed Internet connection is required, we highly recommend an IsatHub (consumer grade) or BGAN (professional grade) portable global WiFi hotspots, all shown below.

Iridium Go!
This portable satellite terminal eliminates "no cellular service" period. The Iridium GO offers 100% global coverage for smartphones to make and receive calls, send and receive instant messages, send & receive email, send files, track a GPS location and many many more features. The Iridium Go lets you "GO" anywhere, even to the North Pole, just as long as the sky can be seen. And while the Internet connection is limited at and advertised 2.5 Kilobits per second, it would be enough to do basics such as sending small files or checking the weather from a weather App. The GO is a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 5 Apple® or Android™ devices to connect up to 100' (30 meters), which is perfect for working inside.

Iridium GO Facts - Here are some of the most common Answers to Iridium GO questions.

The feature list is long so we recommend reading the Iridium Go Documentation for more information.


100% Global
All Iridium products operate anywhere on the planet, which means both North and South poles, open oceans, all continents, stationary or moving or flying as long as the GO is exposed to the open sky. And with a 100 foot (30 meters) Wi-Fi range, one may connect a smart device to the GO while inside. There are 66 Iridium satellites in various Low-Earth-Orbits, 490 miles above the Earth's surface, traveling from horizon to horizon with a maximum view time of 10 minutes each. Here is a Youtube Video that shows the Iridium orbits. When one satellite drops below the horizon, another is already in view... however for best results to stay connected, use the GO! under a big sky.

A captain or crew calling scratch card can be used in the Iridium GO! device. The application can be configured to dial the first stage dialing number and submit the captain PIN or crew scratch # automatically. Configure this setting at settings -> Captain/Crew Calling option.


Internet Connectivity - Realistic Expectations
At an advertised 2.5 Kilobits per second (1 Kbps realsitically), the Iridium GO! is not a solution to those looking for workable connection for normal Internet use (for a working Internet connectivity, we recommend the IsatHub, or a portable BGAN terminal) . For optimal speeds and avoiding disconnections, the GO terminal must be under a very wide open sky. Please read our Go Internet Testing page for more information. Since the connection is slow, Email attachments of any size will take many minutes or possibly hours to transfer, and there does appear to be a size limit for the Email program. A single standard sized web page (with images) on average takes about 10 minutes to load, however the Opera Mini web browser does reduce image size by about 90%. With images turned off, the page load time when the network is working is about 1 minute. We do recommend bookmarking web pages that are mobile optimized. Here is a list of mobile sites that Iridium provides (this page is the GO! homepage on the Opera browser as well).

A connection to the Internet using the Iridium GO (also known as data minutes) are limited to authorized smartphone and tablet apps, so your existing apps on your device will unfortunately not work over the GO. Right now the current Iridium GO apps are 1. Iridium GO App, 2. Mail & Web App, 3. Opera Mini browser (for iOS), 4. XWeb browser (for Android)... Recently Iridium introduced these 3rd party Apps for the Iridium GO. The Web portion of the Mail and Web app will automatically open a browsing session either with Opera Mini with iPhone/iPad, or XWeb with Android. All apps are free on the iPhone/iPad App Store or the Google Play store.

Our conclusion is that Internet access with the Iridium GO should be for those who are very patient, preferably with images turned off. Having more than one connected device trying to use the Internet would create an even worse bottleneck (it allows up to 5 connected devices). The good news for the Iridium GO is that applications like Instant messaging, GPS Tracking, Email and under 50K Email attachments (using the Mail & Web App), are pretty good. Let's not forget it's also capable of making/receiving a voice call from anywhere the sky can be seen.


Iridium GO - Internet Testing
We've been doing some testing on an Iridium Go from our offices at Ground Control, and created a web page where we could share our findings, as well as findings of others about this product... The good and the bad. Iridium GO! Internet Testing

Opera Progress Bar for Iridium Go
When loading a web page, the one most important trick we learned (besides turning images off), is to make sure that the green progress bar appears in the Opera Mini web browser. If the green bar does not appear, then the web page is not loading. This bar was an accurate tool showing the relative time of a page download, and was quite useful. The spinning progress icon at the top of the browser did not actually represent a download was in progress, and we ignored it.

We started an Iridium Go troubleshooting page for those having issues connecting.
For questions regarding GO! testing, please email webmaster@groundcontrol.com
