Satcom Vendors Recommendation

I'm looking to buy an Iridium Openport setup but still considering an Inmarsat FB150 system. Anybody have recommendations for vendors that sell and support both?

Iridium OpenPort / INMARSAT FB150

Agility,
It's been my experience that when considering a system such as these, nobody (or very few) selling either one is going to try a hard sell, nor attempt to steer you wrong.....

I'd suggest two things.....

1) Give George Fenwick, at Telaurus Communications a call / e-mail, and you'll get the straight scoop, with no BS......


2) Read the detailed discussion on these (and some other issues) at SSCA disc board....
SSCA Discussion Board • View topic - Satellite Internet Service?


And, I suspect that you'll either install Open Port, or decide both are a bit too pricey.....

John
