page
for satellite coverage.

Report from a new user in Papua New Guinea, December 2009:
I tried out the voice function of the Sabre this
morning - worked great! CLEAR AS A BELL! I am sending and receiving email with the BGAN right
now, over my Mac, for the first time. The wireless
service is down...for the third day in a row...so, I got
tired of waiting for it to come back up, and with less
than 60 kb usage, and in about two minutes I had a stack of emails in and am now replying.

Contact us at iinfo@humaninet.org f you would like more information. Please use "BGAN" in the subject line of your email, and include the name of your organization and whether you are using BGAN service or a satphone. We will reply within three business days.

There are six models of BGAN terminals, with equipment prices beginning at $1100 and service at under $7 per megabyte. Most of these models enable both voice and data communications. The voice calls have demonstrated extremely good quality in our tests, with international calls at just over one US$ per minute.

Please see our home page and ICT Features section for more on the BGAN terminals. Our article on Using the Web affordably over BGAN offers some tips on managing costs, as does an earlier article on Holding Down Usage over BGAN.

Please contact us at info@humaninet.org for more information.

HumaniNet has a small number of Sabre BGANs and Iridium satphones available for loan to qualifying humanitarian and mission teams. Please contact us at: info@humaninet.org.
