The IsatHub Tiered Plans transfer a lot of data for a per-Megabyte cost that is amazingly low. Tiered plan usage is based on ANY usage from the 1st of the month to the last day last day of the month resetting at 11:59:59 GMT. This plan has a 12 month minimum term paid annually for the first 12 months, then it reverts to month-to-month billing (unless requested otherwise). Monthly service includes 20 Megabytes each month at $63/month. If over 20 Megabytes is used in a month, Ground Control bills the subscriber a fixed flat-rate at the beginning of the following month at these tiered rates:
