  • Pre-Paid satellite voice and data services available in the US for the first time
  • Inmarsat can now offer pre-paid voice and data services globally
  • Pre-Paid IsatPhone Pro, BGAN, FleetBroadband and FleetPhone customers can now use a single device for voice and data across the globe

LONDON – 21 August 2012 – Inmarsat, the leading provider of global mobile satellite communications services, today announced that it now offers global pre-paid satellite services for both voice and data with the introduction of support for voice calls originating in the US and its territories.

Through an agreement with Freedom Wireless Holdings Inc., Inmarsat is now the first mobile satellite provider in the world licensed to offer pre-paid services from the US. These services will be available from 1st September 2012 for all existing Inmarsat land and maritime services including IsatPhone Pro, BGAN, FleetBroadband and FleetPhone.

Pre-paid services are popular with people who work on short term or seasonal projects and prefer not to commit to a contract. “Many customers use satellite services across multiple markets and have been frustrated by being unable to use pre-paid services while in the US and its territorial waters. We are proud to be the first company to deliver a global service. This announcement exemplifies our commitment to meeting our customers’ needs,” said Jim Parm, President of Inmarsat Solutions.

“With this breakthrough announcement we are simplifying communications for our users. IsatPhone Pro users can now be contacted using a single phone number wherever they are located and use just one device for their global communications, while FleetBroadband customers can now travel in and out of US territorial waters on pre-paid plans” added Parm.
