Ground Control offers a wide variety of portable satellite internet devices for use in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. What we mean by portable is that the devices are small enough to pick up and carry, and all of these devices fit the bill. They are all BGAN devices, which means they use the Inmarsat BGAN airtime service - connecting to geostationary satellites for a very stable satellite connection, which is particularly important for VoIP calls.Portable Satellite Internet Devices
