Australian Plan

The Australian Plan is designed for use in mainland Australia or up to 200nm offshore, plus New Zealand mainland and up to 12nm offshore (these areas known as 'Territory').

Iridium have set favourable rates for use within these areas so if your intended usage is in and around Australia this may be the plan for you. Please bear in mind that for usage outside these areas, call rates are much higher.
