When you do not need to sail around world you can use a regional package with a single beam or a combination of several beams.  This will still give you the mobility required but most likely at a slightly lower cost than the global.

When using single beams you will also ba able to achieve higher speeds than on global packages, the reason for this being that the higher speed does not have to be provisioned on every satellite.

Most regional packages cover

  • North America
  • Caribbean
  • Transatlantic
  • Europe
  • Africa
  • Middle East
  • South East Asia
  • Asia
  • Australia
  • South America

Combinations can be made between different packages to tailor to your specific needs.
