Bundle Plans from Ground Control allow all BGAN services, including streaming services, to deduct from a bundle account at the below listed rates. A minimum of $1,500 is required to open a bundle account and there’s no maximum amount. Additional funds may be added at any time. The valid period is one year from activation.
All BGAN terminals have access to streaming services, which are unshared channels over the BGAN satellite link to the internet backbone. Live event broadcasters use streaming channels to avoid audio and video dropouts during a video feed. While streaming video is possible over the standard shared BGAN service, it’s sometimes unpredictable, and dropouts can occur.
Streaming services connect to the internet just like standard BGAN services do, but streaming services are charged by the minute of use, unlike standard BGAN services which charge by the megabyte transferred.
