Keep Lines of Communication Open with Our Satellite Phones for Hire

Electric Bug is a family-owned and operated store that provides satellite phones for hire at the most competitive prices in the market. We understand how vital these phones are when travelling to remote areas (such as when you are travelling 60kms North of Port Augusta). Therefore, we have a fleet of phones available for hire.

Since our launch in 1976, our company has been at the forefront of ensuring that we provide quality communication, GPS and navigation products and services to our clients. We guarantee that our satellite phone fleet comes from reputable brands such as iridium and other reliable mobile networks.

Apart from our high powered Iridium satellite phones, we also hire a variety of devices, including UHF CB, UHF Handheld and emergency Beacons. Get in touch with us today to learn more about our products and the costs of satellite phone rental, or if you’d like to book or get a quote from us.

Why Get a Satellite Phone for Hire

Primarily, people hire satellite phones because they want to keep lines of communication open when travelling to remote or rural areas. Compared to mobile phones, which connect to a particular cellular phone tower, these devices connect directly to a satellite. Hence, if you are a business that operates globally, it’s easy for you to operate regardless of your location.

Other reasons why you’ll need a satellite phone:

  • Travelling enthusiasts can remain in communication with their families once they get to a location where mobile networks are not accessible. You will ensure that they have peace of mind even when you are far away from them
  • They are a safety tool, especially during an emergency call. For instance, in case of an earthquake and your cell phone service is not functional, you can use the device to communicate
  • Satellite phones also transmit your location automatically. If you need a rescue team to locate you, the team can use the GPS location to assist you

Buying Vs Hiring a Satellite Phone

When looking for a satellite phone, you can look forward to either hiring or buying one with Electric Bug. The decision you make will depend on two things, your needs and budget.

What do you need to know about the budget?

These devices are a bit costly. If you are an avid traveller or a business that does global operations, renting a satellite phone might be more expensive since you’ll need this phone quite often.

Why do you need the satellite phone?

If you only need to travel for a few days, hiring this device can be a cost-effective option for you compared to buying one.

We have a high in demand hire structure service that has enabled us to support up to 60,000 Australians and New Zealanders.
