Read and write your emails offline, saving airtime, then simply press a button - XGate will dial your satellite phone for you and hang up when it’s done. If your call drops, XGate can redial and simply pick up where it left off. And only XGate eliminates the back and forth of email protocols before using precious airtime.
Faster. Cheaper. Better.
XGate uses only 5% of the data of a standard email program, on average. That means you save up to 95% on satellite airtime costs compared to using your email without XGate. It also means that what would take 60 minutes or more over a standard Iridium connection, for example, will only take 3 minutes with XGate.
