Inmarsat Launches IsatPhone Pro Humanitarian Aid Service Bundle
[Satellite TODAY 10-29-12] Inmarsat has launched a new IsatPhone Pro humanitarian aid package that aims to provide NGOs with a total of 3,000 minutes per month that can be shared between three SIMs, the MSS operator announced Oct. 29.
Inmarsat is also extending the offer to its BGAN Link broadband service launched earlier this year. The service allows NGOs working on location to take advantage of a high-volume usage broadband service for a fixed monthly price for sustained periods of time.
“We have listened carefully to NGOs who have been telling us that affordability and predictability of pricing, alongside our unrivalled Quality of Service, is extremely important to them. We have responded with this new voice bundle for our IsatPhone Pro service,” Inmarsat President of Enterprise Business Ronald Spithout said in a statement. “Our IsatPhone Pro and BGAN Link packages for the Aid sector help NGOs to better control their satellite communication costs because they know exactly what they are spending every month. This will allow them to benefit from Inmarsat’s services every day, over an extended time period, not just in times of emergency or crisis.”
