Phone coverage

The Thuraya satellite located closest to Australia is based just west of Singapore 37,000 KMS above the equator. Indicated here by red arrows. Please be aware that you will need to see a clear line of site “look up angle” above the virtual horizon in that direction. If that path is not visible due to buildings, mountains heavy foliage etc. then the phone will need be repositioned so it can see the satellite. Please consider this when selecting a satellite phone. If in doubt please contact us for an unbiased opinion of how each of the satellite phones and their respective networks will perform for you.

Example 

If you were in Alice Springs your phone would need to see an angle of 44 degrees above the "virtual" horizon which is half way up to the vertical and in a north westerly direction.
