iSavi iSatHub Broadband Satellite WiFi HotSpot
iSatHub is a service from satellite network operator Inmarsat, similar to 3G in terms of features and performance, but specifically delivered via a new class of device we call Satellite Wi-Fi Hotspots.
By definition, satellite Wi-Fi hotspots connects to the satellite network on one end, and, by means of broadcasting its own little Wi-Fi hotspot, to your smartphone or tablet at the other end. iSatHub can also be used with Windows laptops.
This enables you to use your smartphones and tablets from the remotest regions on earth just as if you were connected to a cellular network. Free apps available in the Apple & Android stores enables the user to control their iSatHub device and make use of advanced features.
Inmarsat’s iSatHub service will ultimately be available via a handful of different iSatHub terminals, but at launch there is only one Inmarsat iSatHub terminal, called the iSavi Inmarsat iSatHub.
The iSavi Inmarsat iSatHub has an industry-leading data speed of 384kbps (lightning fast in satellite data terms), and certainly way, way better than anything available from Inmarsat’s competitors.
With iSatHub you can use any Apple or Android smartphone or tablet to make voice calls, send text messages, and surf the internet from anywhere on the planet – except the Polar Regions.
Because the iSatHub terminals connect wirelessly to all your devices they are far, far easier to use than any preceding mobile satellite internet service or device. And since the iSavi iSatHub has a 384kbps connection, it is now for the first time truly viable to share your Inmarsat internet connection with other users.
Additionally, in what is a great feature to control costs, Inmarsat iSatHub has a built-in firewall which makes it very easy for the user to choose whether just voice, voice & email, or voice & email + internet traffic should be allowed to pass through the terminal.
Ashbury SatCom offers both prepaid vouchers and easy online pay-monthly subscriptions for isatHub and you can learn more about them from the relevant sections in our web shop.
