Optus Connects With SatSleeve For 100% Mobile Coverage

X

Optus has launched a new generation of SatSleeve models, the SatSleeve+ and SatSleeve Hotspot, which it states effectively deliver 100 per cent mobile coverage across Australia, where line of sight to the satellite exists.Thuraya’s SatSleeve+ connects to a range of iOS and Android phones – including  devices from Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony and Huawei – turning the handset into a satellite phone via the SatSleeve app, with users able to access voice, SMS and data services.

“In a country as vast as ours, living and working in remote areas is increasingly common,” Paul Sheridan, Optus Satellite vice president, commented.

“We know that the resources and mining sector boom has seen large workforces stationed in remote locations. With a SatSleeve, people can stay in touch when outside of mobile range.”

The new SatSleeve models employ Wi-Fi to connect with the smartphone and are controlled through the new, free SatSleeve Hotspot app.

The SatSleeve Hotspot acts as a Wi-Fi hotspot service to deliver voice calls, as well as SMS and data to a smartphone or tablet.

“It acts like the home Wi-Fi, but delivers connectivity via satellite rather than a fixed line,” Sheridan commented.

The SatSleeve+ and SatSleeve Hotspot carry a price tag of $899, available on a minimum $15 per month month-to-month plan.
