You may be aware that as of 1 July this year, all hand held satellite telephones sold in Australia must connect to the Triple Zero network.
This is great news for the users of these important safety devices.
Existing satellite phone users can also access this technology – however your phone may need a software update in order to connect directly to the Triple Zero network.
Please contact your service provider to ensure you are covered.

Kind regards and safe travelling.
