Thuraya - airtime Australia


ClientSAT will supply your Thuraya satellite phone with an Australian mobile number 04XX XXX XXX

When calling to the satellite phone the caller will be charged at their normal “calls to mobile" rates. You are not charged for receiving calls in Australia. With an unlimited call plan or within bundle call allowance on a mobile plan they would effectively be calling the satellite phone at no out of pocket expense! There are 4 different monthly airtime options here.


At just $16.50 / month with no minimum call spend required this is great value! A $35 activation fee applies. Cancel at any time. 

The casual plan is very popular shown in below. Just one month minimum term. You can cancel and then restart with the same sim card however another $35 is charged to reactivate if you cancel the service. Alternatively suspend your service for $7.50 per month.

Thuraya Satellite coverage map. In Australia we use the satellite above Singapore
A second satellite located above Kenya provides further coverage in The Middle East, Europe and Africa etc.



Look up angle explanation-
face approximately North West to obtain 5 bars of signal strength

If you were in Alice Springs your phone would need to see an angle of 44 degrees above the horizon,about half way up to the vertical.

We don't recommend Thuraya for the mountainous areas of eastern Australia as the satellite is too low in the sky.
