Affordable, unlimited on-demand BGAN service designed for Public Safety

Public Safety BGAN Service

Until recently, traditional BGAN service has been cost-prohibitive for many organizations, at approx. $5 to $7 per megabyte transferred. Today, with our Emergency Responder plan, costs now are as low as $0.10 per megabyte transferred, and there are no limits to how much that can be transferred. Service will never suspend. Portable-anywhere connectivity is now viable.

BGAN Emergency Responder service is available for all of our BGAN terminals and may be used worldwide. Please call us at +1.805-783-4600 (USA and Canada), +44 (0) 1452 751940 (UK and International), or email us for more information.

BGAN emergency plans details

  • Service is post-use billed monthly for any calendar month usage (Jan, Feb, Mar, etc.), and resets at the beginning of each month.
  • Mid-month activations may be pro-rated.
  • Incoming voice calls are free, but the calling party will be charged at their provider’s rates to call to your satellite phone.
  • Voice calls over BGAN service do not use available megabytes, meaning there’s no extra charge other than standard BGAN calling rates.
  • BGAN terminals operate in any country with the four Inmarsat satellites without any plan changes. No licence or certification required.
  • Optimize your laptops and smartphones with these techniques to get the most out of your data connection.
  • Inmarsat does reserve the right to slow speeds up to 128Kbps if 30 gigabytes are used in any month. But 30 gigabytes of BGAN is an awful lot.
