Satellite Phone Solutions

The motto of the SPS Rental Department is “No Strings Attached, No Hidden Charges, Just Friendly Customer Service”. Satellite Phone Solutions does keep it simple with a $35 per week Globalstar 1700 rental, and $99 a week for an Iridium rental. We only rent Iridium 9555’s, so when you rent, you know you are going to get an Iridium 9555. While other rental companies charge extra for a second battery or DC charger, we provide an AC and DC charger, two batteries, and your choice of Pelican hard case or a soft case if you prefer. Need a data cable or a remote antenna .... just ask us and we will include one at no additional charge. SPS shipping costs are straight-forward - $15.95 Ground - $37.95 Second Day and $58.95 Overnight. We offer a prepaid return FedEx shipping label for $15.95 to make the return process as easy as possible. We also get the phone to you a couple of days before your trip at no extra charge, and give you a week after your rental to get the phone back to us. Competitive Pricing – No Hidden Charges – Real People on the Phone = Satisfied Customers.

Satellite Phone Solutions also listens to its customers. From their comments, we have developed several custom programs. One of our most popular is the Globalstar 1700 Weekly Rental with Unlimited Airtime for $75 per week. For $20 a week customers can add a SPOT Messenger to their satphone rental. This includes full SPOT service with Check-In OK and tracking. Customers who need to rent for two or three months receive every fourth week's rental fee for free. As you browse the rental options below, we think you will see that we try to keep things simple. If you have an application that one of our plans does not cover, give us a call at 561-245-5203 and one of our staff will help you put together a package that will work for you.

rip was great and we didn't want to leave. - John C 4/16

We enjoyed having the Globalstar phone with us for the canyon trip. The longest we had to wait for service connection was 10 minutes when in the deepest part of the canyon.Thanks for the service, advice and support as well. - Bruce H 4/16

Efficient and Easy. One quick call to set up the rental. The phone showed up on time as promised with FedEx tracking.

Great Service and Product! I will definately use SPS for all my future SAT Phone needs! Marshall M - 09/10/2014
