Looking at this definition, Its a necessary tool for explorers, adventurers or remote field workers. with this, you can easily report incidence back to home base. Personally, I used the Thuraya XT pro reason being it's Supported by the most robust and powerful satellite network Important: However, The Thuraya satellite network does not offer coverage in the US. It is not possible to use Thuraya satellite phones/SatSleeves or SIM cards in this region. Before you go in for This phone, Ensure to check the Thuraya coverage map for details of countries in the Thuraya coverage area.
