Inmarsat Satellite repositioning

  
  

Coverage for some of Inmarsat's services will be changing.

Following the successful launch of its third I-4 satellite on 18 August 2008, Inmarsat will be repositioning its satellites in order to optimise the network and deliver global coverage.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

During the satellite repositioning process, Inmarsat is making every effort to minimise any impact on customers. However, there will be two short service outages that will affect a small number of BGAN, FleetBroadband, SwiftBroadband and Satellite Phone Service users in a restricted area.

There will also be slight changes to spot beam coverage in the Atlantic Ocean Region-West for some maritime and aeronautical services.
