The notion of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), impossible just a few years ago is now a reality

GlobaFone, a leading multi-carrier satellite service provider announced today the inclusion of the Iridium GO! Personal Wi-Fi hotspot to their portfolio of SatCom solutions. The lightweight, compact device can connect to a variety of devices and, through the downloadable app, enable voice and data communications from your personal device with no need for an additional satellite phone. You can see the Iridium GO April 15 and 16 at the National Hurricane Conference in Orlando.

"The Iridium GO! brings adds the dimension of satellite communications to people who previously felt a satellite iPhone was beyond their reach”, said GlobaFone CEO Lou Altman. “The notion of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), impossible just a few years ago is now a reality.”

Simply download the app, place the GO! within 100 feet of your device, pop up the small antenna and in minutes you’ll be connected from the most remote regions of the planet. Rate plans start at around $45/month and $1.09/minute and there is an unlimited plan for $135/month. “In the way that GO! is a first, an unlimited satellite plan using your own phone is also a first,” said Altman.

Iridium GO! Will be available for delivery in May and due to the anticipated popularity, pre-ordering is encouraged.
