When is PrePaid the right choice?
Prepaid can be the right choice when you need to stabilize your ongoing monthly costs at a certain level. It’s often a good fit for individuals who aren’t sure exactly how much they will be using their Iridium GO!, but need to ensure that they aren’t surprised by any unpredictable costs at the end of the month. With PrePaid, that’s impossible, because there are no additional costs beyond what you’ve paid for upfront, and no monthly bill.
PrePaid is also a useful tool for managers, team leaders or program directors. An Iridium GO! PrePaid SIM card gives you a way to establish a monthly budget, and ensure that you have control over the amount of usage you and your team have access to. For missions or operations that need predictable budgeting, or who have multiple team members accessing the same Iridium GO!, PrePaid keeps the budget decisions in your hands, and is a good tool to keep a lid on usage and costs.
But of course, sometimes you will need more minutes. And while monthly plans may be simpler and more flexible in some ways, PrePaid is flexible too.
When you do need extra data minutes, you can simply purchase more. As long as you replenish your airtime by purchasing additional minutes before your original validity period ends, there are no replenishment fees. So when usage spikes unpredictably, such as in a crisis or other unplanned for situation, you have it covered. With PrePaid replenishment, you still have control over your costs, because you can only use the additional minutes you’ve already paid for.
And sometimes you have the opposite situation: unused minutes. When you have unused data minutes and you don’t want to lose them, BlueCosmo offers you simple ways to do extend your validity period. As long as you purchase your extension before your original validity period ends, you don’t lose any of your unused minutes. This is a great way to get the most out of your Iridium GO! PrePaid, manage your costs, and maintain your service even during periods of low usage.
For individuals and managers alike, a prepaid plan can simplify your budgeting, and give you a tool to use your Iridium GO! as little or as much as you need without incurring any unexpected charges. The more PrePaid data minutes you purchase upfront, the lower your per-minute costs. Iridium GO! PrePaid data minutes are valid globally, so you can use them from anywhere you take your Iridium GO! And because it’s the Iridium network of global communication satellites, this means that every region of the planet is covered. Whether you’re in central Africa, off the tip of Patagonia, in the North Sea or east Mediterranean, your PrePaid Iridium GO! Data minutes are all you need to keep your Iridium GO! connected.
