Ground Control BGAN service is measured in Megabytes and should not be confused with “BGAN units” (It takes 9.1 BGAN units to equal 1 Megabyte). Should you require a service plan that covers streaming services, please contact us to tailor a plan to fit.

Monthly usage is based from the 1st of the month to the last day of the calendar month.
