Iridium Openport - Shared Plans for the Multiple Systems
Iridium has created a special class of service plans called Dynamic Share Group Plans (DSG) where a pool of Megabytes/Gigabytes of Internet access are shared among a fleet of 5 or more vessels. The Dynamic Share Group Plan requires a 12 month minimum term and is available to all organizations as long as there are 5 active accounts in any 3 month period.

IMPORTANT
The Costs below are reflective of one Sim Card. Each Sim Card purchased puts their allotment of Megabytes into the Pool, and all Sim Cards must be on the same plan. For example, if you were to purchase 7 Sim Cards with 250 Megabytes Monthly Usage, then the pool available would be a total of 1,750 Megabytes each month. Voice plan minutes on the other hand are not shared and are indpendent to each Sim Card. Each Sim Card may choose a different voice plan.

  bullet There is a 12 month minimum commitment term with the Dynamic Share Group Plans (DSG). The minimum commitment period applies both the DSG as a whole, as well as to each SIM based on SIM's date of activation. For example, if a new activation were added 6 months into the term, then the whole of the term commitment is reset to 12 months from that activation date.
  bullet Addition and removal of SIMs in a DSG can only take place at the start of a billing period (the 1st of each month).
  bullet The allowance will only be shared when there are 5 SIMs minimum provisioned upon the DSG If there are less than 5 SIMs active on the DSG, each SIM can only utilize their own allowance. 3 billing months are allowed to achieve the 5 minimum SIMs. After this, the monthly charge will be for the full minimum (5 SIMs), but the allowance provided will continue to be based upon the actual number of SIMs.
  bullet Early termination of a DSG prior to the end of the DSG Minimum Term Commitment shall result in an early termination fee equal to the respective MRC multiplied by the number of Minimum DSG Participants.
