Latin America (prepaid)

iridium latin america prepaid plan

Latin America prepaid service plan.

Overview

Working or traveling in Canada? Whether you are an occasional traveler, a seasonal worker, a fisherman or just an adventurer who needs an affordable and reliable connection, a Canada & Alaska plan is for you. It provides a low per minute cost for calls placed to Canada, Alaska and the United States and flexible 6 or 12-month prepaid term. If a user requires an additional time, a 30-day extension voucher can be purchased using an online store. This plan works across all of the Iridium satellite phones including the Iridium GO!®.

The Canada & Alaska Plan is optimized for subscribers who call within Alaska and Canada. It is ideal for Northern users because of the low per minute costs associated with calls to North America (excluding Mexico).

The Canada & Alaska plan benefits include:

  • Low per minute cost for calls from Canada and Alaska to North America
  • Matches the seasonal needs of the Canadian and Alaskan customers, which is typically a six month season. Unused Minutes will carry forward to the next months.
