FOR SATELLITE PHONES
Introducing SatCollect. A unique solution to allow satellite phone users to select one or many local phone numbers in over 50 different countries that will terminate to their satellite phone.
This results in a saving of up to 90% on your calls costs when compared to dialing the satellite phone number directly.
The activation fee is a one-time fee that applies to each activated number. It is currently $9.99.
There is a monthly service charge per activated number. Airtime is billed per minute and is not included in the monthly fee.
Airtime is based on where the call is terminating, not originating. Please make sure you lookup pricing based on the destination number, such as the satellite phone number, and not the local number or originating number.

For the first time, you can monitor in real time and put restrictions on who is using the phone and how much they are spending

Simplify the calling process to a satellite phone
Knowing the country code or the long satellite phone number can create confusion, delays or can discourage calls to a satellite phone. Providing a service similar to what people are comfortable with will encourage more usage.
Enhanced cost saving features
In addition to the easier usage, you can also control your satellite budget with a simple permanent rate. In simple terms, you will pay calls on a “local to local” as opposed to “long distance to long distance” basis.
Also, anyone calling to a satellite phone will no longer be charged for international rates. You can stop all unauthorized calls with pin based access codes and save money by routing the call over the SatCollect global network to a satellite phone wherever in the world it may be.
One of the many benefits is the ability to control costs. Losing control of your satellite communication costs could have a huge impact on your bottom line if calls were made in error or the phones were used by unauthorized users.
