The terminals are normally used to connect a laptop computer to Broadband Internet in remote locations, although as long as line-of-sight to the satellite exists, the terminal can be used anywhere.

The terminals are normally used to connect a laptop computer to Broadband Internet in remote locations, although as long as line-of-sight to the satellite exists, the terminal can be used anywhere.

The value of BGAN terminals is that unlike other satellite Internet services which require bulky & heavy satellite dishes to connect, a BGAN terminal is about the size of a laptop and thus can be carried easily.

The network is provided by Inmarsat and uses three geostationary satellites called I-4 to provide almost global coverage.
