On Monday, Iridium announced that it has reached more than 500,000 total billable subscribers worldwide for its satellite voice and data services. Reaching half a million subscribers is a major milestone, possible only through the talent and dedication that everyone at Iridium and its partners have consistently put into their work. Thank you and congratulations to all Iridium partners, employees and contractors for this impressive achievement.
“Our consistent double-digit growth in subscribers – more than 25 percent growth every year for the last five years – is a reflection of our global network reach, our service offerings enabling connections that matter, and our expanding partner ecosystem,” said Iridium CEO Matt Desch. “This milestone demonstrates how far we’ve evolved over the last ten years from a supplier of mobile satellite phones for niche markets into a global communications company connecting anyone and anything, all over the world, in ways and places in which they expect to be connected.”
