22 December 2014: Inmarsat’s IsatHub service has made its debut on the BBC’s flagship gadget programme Click revealing just how easy it to connect to the outside world via satellite communications.
The global smart device connectivity service allows you to use your phone or tablet seamlessly to talk, text, and access the internet and your apps.
Presenter Dan Simmons’s challenge was to travel to an isolated spot in the world with no WiFi or cellular coverage to discover if he could get a connection to the internet for less than £1,000.
Dan took a camel ride for several hours across a desert just outside Marrakesh with Inmarsat’s Test & Release Manager, Nick Whitehead, and the paperback book sized Wideye iSavi terminal, and demonstrated just how well the IsatHub service works.
The programme is broadcast on BBC2 and BBC News, as well as to a worldwide audience via BBC World News and BBC Persian Click.
The show was broadcast over the weekend and is available to watch on the BBC iPlayer.
