You can have multiple phones connected to the IsatHub (all with the same phone number), but only one phone can be in use at any time. You can also give your phone a local phone number so anyone can call you without paying for an international call. Also with Ground Control’s, voice service for the IsatHub uses no data, so you’re only charged the per-minute phone rate, and only for outgoing calls since incoming calls are free.

Applications – Email – File Attachments = No Problem

Since all Apps on your smart device or laptop can connect to the Internet through the iSavi, simply use everything normally as you would with any WiFi hotspot. There is no need to change any settings on any application you currently use such as email programs.

IsatHub Boat Ocean Operation / IsatHub Open Ocean Usage

We cannot guarantee the iSavi/IsatHub will connect every time on the open ocean, our clients are having success connecting if the boat is traveling in a straight line… which is what most barges and cruise ships do.
