Range Global Offers Short Term Satellite Phone Rentals in Preparation for the 2013 Hurricane Season

In preparation for the 2013 hurricane season, Range Global Services is releasing a short term satellite phone rental program start March 1st.

Emergency preparedness kits are always a good idea. One can never be too prepared for inclement seasonal weather, earthquakes, or worse. Some acts of God, so to speak, are annual, happening like clockwork all over the world, but more frequently in certain parts of the globe. The aftermath of such events is always exacerbated by the loss of cell phone service and other means by which families, friends, and rescue teams might potentially keep in touch. However, loss of communication power does not have to be an inescapable outcome of a natural disaster. A satellite phone rental effectively bridges communication gaps between disparate parties where other types of cell phones fail.

Unlike traditional cell phones, which rely upon terrestrial cell sites (towers) off of which signals are “pinged”, satellite phones rely exclusively upon satellites to relay their signals. Satellites orbiting the earth, in some cases hundreds of miles above the earth's atmosphere, are not subject to whatever weather conditions or other adverse situations are brewing here upon the ground. This means that the collapse of local infrastructures ( all too common a sight in the wake of tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes, and even black-outs) does not at all prevent a satellite phone user from contacting another satellite phone user within the disaster area, or from contacting a landline or cell phone owned by someone who resides outside of the affected area.

Ensuring one is able to remain in connection with friends and family is possibly the most crucial means to overcoming the trauma of a natural disaster. Rescue crews and relief workers can also benefit from a satellite phone rental; the reliability of a satellite phone rental can be a vital tool during the coordination of efforts where traditional cell towers are indefinitely inoperable.

For mere pennies, one can establish peace of mind beforehand, resting in the knowledge that no contrary circumstances shall prevent one from maintaining a close tie with friends, family, or help that is on the way. Short term, seasonal satellite phone rental packages include: Option 1 - $195 per month/50 minutes included (not per month)/$1.75 per minute overage; Option 2 - $225 per month/25 minutes included (not per month)/$1.95 per minute overage.

Whether tsunami, earthquake, or hurricane, a satellite phone rental is key to disaster/emergency prep and subsequent survival.
