Iridium Data Service in Gambia

Iridium data is available everywhere on the planet including Gambia. Iridium uses a low earth orbit satellite connection, so unlike other solutions there is no need to align the atennea with the satellite in order to connect. You simply need to have the antenna outside and up.

Iridium is not as fast as other Satellite Internet connections, connecting at only 9Kbps. Therefore it is not ideal for web-surfing but can definitely be a great solution for SMS and Email. In fact, we offer a free email package which is optimized for sending and receiving data via the Iridium network using the lowest amount of bandwidth.

This easy to use data kit includes everything you need to attach your laptop or PDA to an Iridium telephone, and the software and drivers to connect to the Internet.
