Satellite Phone

What are the advantages of using a satellite phone?

It will work almost anywhere, providing you have line of sight. It is completely independent of the local telecommunication infrastructure available. Iridum coverage is truly global.

What is this “line of sight”?

All satellite phones need line of sight to operate. This usually means the satellite phone (or antenna) must be located outside to send or receive a call. In certain cases they will work inside buildings (with large clear glass windows), provided the windows are facing the right direction with a clear and unobstructed view of the sky.

Can you call any telephone?

Yes, cell phones, landlines, other satellite phones, home, your office, any phone.

What are the disadvantages of satellite phones?

Briefly – size, weight, line of sight and cost.

How do I pay for the rental satellite phone?

Your rental cost will be debited from your credit card on delivery of the rental satellite phone. Call charges will be debited to your credit card on a monthly basis.

Is own insurance required for a rental phone?

Insurance is recommended. The party renting the phone is obligated under our rental agreement to pay us the current value if they do not return the phone or if it is damaged. You may insure the phone yourself, just ask us for the current value.


Damaged equipment will be repaired or replaced at the Hirer’s expense. You must let us know straight away (within 24 hours) if it becomes lost or stolen so that we can limit your exposure to call costs incurred by any other person.

The term “any destination” means a call terminating on a landline or PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) phone, i.e. an ordinary telephone or cellular phone. Rates for calls between Satellite phones are much more expensive. Please ask us about these call charges if you might be using this service. Rental period shall start from the time of collection or delivery and end once the phone is returned to Cynotech Satellite.
