Inmarsat launch flexible BGAN service plan - Standard+
Inmarsat have launched a unique airtime plan designed to help BGAN users budget for data costs more easily.
The BGAN Standard+ Plan charges a basic Monthly Fee of $71.50 which includes 5MB of usage. If you use over 5MB an additional bundle fee will apply which varies depending on how much data is used - the new feature here is that you do not have to decide upfront on how much data you require as with other plans. The bundle fee will be charged at the end of the month depending on how much data you use.
BGAN Standard+ Example:
Month 1: SIM uses 501MB per month - user pays $71.50 + $1,172.50 = $1,244.00
Month 2: SIM uses 0MB - user pays $71.50 only
