Thuraya SatSleeve

With the Thuraya SatSleeve you turn your smart­phone into a satellite phone. You get both versions: As a universal adapter (SatSleeve+) and an stand adapter (SatSleeve Hotspot). The Satsleeve is compatible with numerous iOS and Android models. An external device (tablet or laptop) can also be connected via wifi for data connection.

Thuraya only works in Europe, Asia, Africa (excluding the south), Australia. For North- and South-America and the south of Africa you need an Iridium or Inmarsat satellite phone.

**) Data trans­mission: On the one hand, Thuraya has a much better data rate than Iridium satellite phones. On the other hand, this is very low for today’s demands even under optimal condi­tions. Sending/receiving emails works, but you should avoid large file attach­ments. Surfing is possible — depending on the site, YouTube definitely not. Under optimal condi­tions, you need over 2 minutes for 1 MB of data.

Rental costs (example calculation)

Fictional rental of an Thuraya SatSleeve satellite phone for your Diving holidays in Egypt:

You fly to ‎Hurghada (Egypt) on 09.03. and return on 24.03. You want to have the phone with you as early as 07.03. so that you can test it at your leisure - which we highly recommend. The satellite phone arrives back at our place on 26.03.

The rental period is therefore 07.03. to 26.03. = 20 days.
Rental price 20 days á 5.00 Euro/day = 100.00 Euro (plus shipping)

Personal use: You call home 4 times for 2 minutes each time. Whether landline or mobile network makes no difference to the price. Furthermore, you send a short text message as an e-mail on each of 3 days. According to the connection prices, this results in:

8 minutes = 18.48 Euro
3 e-mails = 1.32 Euro

Price to reassure your loved ones at home: 119.80 Euro
