BGAN Standard Plus Pricing

BGAN Standard+ is the affordable BGAN Internet service! Standard+ is our most popular plan is available to all BGAN terminals and avoids the high internet service costs from traditional BGAN plans where costs are about $5 per MB transferred.

BGAN Standard+ Tiered Pricing – Usage Only Billing – Annual Plan


The Standard+ Tiered Pricing Annual Plan never suspends unless the subscriber requests a usage cap on each month to stay below a maximum monthly bill. The most that can be charged in any month for internet service is $4,145 USD, but many request the cap be set at 1 Gigabyte or 5 Gigabytes so that the monthly bill is never more than $1,135 or $2,145 respectively. This is the BGAN plan to choose when transferring a lot of data since the per-MB cost is far lower than Standard BGAN service that averages about $5 USD per MB transferred. On Standard+, the cost per MB can be below $0.15 cents per MB.

Standard+ plans bill the subscriber a fixed rate on the tiers below for total usage over 20 MBs during any calendar month resetting on the last day at 11:59:59 PM GMT (A calendar month is January, February, March, etc.). The Standard+ plan’s base-rate of $63 is paid annually the first year ($756) and then goes month-to-month at $63/month thereafter. Service includes 20 MB each calendar month. If over 20 MB are used during any calendar month, Ground Control will bill the subscriber a fixed flat-rate at one of these tiered levels below:


  • Usage from 0 Megabytes to 20 Megabytes in a month is included in the $63 monthly subscription fee
  • Total monthly usage from 20 to 100 MBs billed at $245 USD or $2.45 per MB with 100 MBs used (Tier 1)
  • Total monthly usage from 100 to 250 MBs billed at $420 USD or $1.68 per MB with 250 MBs used (Tier 2)
  • Total monthly usage from 250 to 500 MBs billed at $695 USD or $1.39 per MB with 500 MBs used (Tier 3)
  • Total monthly usage from 500 to 1,000 MBs billed at $1,135 USD or $1.13 per MB with 1,000 MBs used (Tier 4)
  • Total monthly usage from 1,000 to 5,000 MBs billed at $2,145 USD or $0.43 per MB with 5,000 MBs used (Tier 5)
  • Total monthly usage from 5,000 to 10,000 MBs billed at $2,795 USD or $0.30 per MB with 10,000 MBs used (Tier 6)
  • Total monthly usage from 10,000 to Unlimited Use is billed at $4,145 USD (Tier 7).

The maximum monthly charge using Standard+ Internet would be tier 7 or $4,145 USD. Tiers are NOT combined. The monthly Internet usage can only fall into one tier (above 20 MBs). You may CAP monthly maximum usage at 500 MB or a greater tier so as not to enter a higher tier for fixed costs. Please let us know. A security deposit up to $4,000 may be required on this plan (see additional plan details below).

Standard+ plans are ideal for heavy users, as well as emergency use when service is really needed some months, but other months where service is not used don’t see (much of) a bill. Public service agencies as well as many organizations and professionals can predict fixed costs and have a reliable non-suspending Internet and Phone anytime.
