Thuraya XT LITE Satellite Phone

The Thuraya XT LITE satellite phone is a very basic satellite phone that works in most of Europe, Asia, and northern Africa. The Thuraya satellite phones are very popular in Northern Africa and the Arabic world, but they do not work in the Americas, the Atlantic, the Polar regions, and Southern Africa.

The Thuraya XT LITE is available with 2 different types of prepaid SIM cards. The Thuraya Standard Prepaid SIM card offers the same call rates over the entire Thuraya satellite coverage area, whereas the Thuraya Nova Prepaid SIM card offers reduced rates in a number of countries, but increased rates in the others. For the NOVA countries see the Thuraya airtime options.
