This is Inmarsat

Inmarsat is the world's leading provider of global mobile satellite communications. We provide mobile voice and high-speed data services to almost anywhere on the planet - on land, at sea and in the air.


Pioneering and reliable

Inmarsat has stood at the forefront of mobile satellite services for nearly 30 years. We are internationally recognised as pioneers in our field and we continue to introduce new technologies that redefine the standard for our industry.

Our new Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) service, for example, is now enabling TV broadcasters to beam breaking news 'live via videophone' into millions of homes.

And in future, when you make a mobile phone call or send a text message from an aircraft, most likely it will be transmitted via Inmarsat satellites to the ground.

Safety first

For the maritime community, however, our communication and safety services are nothing new. Their lives and livelihoods have depended upon Inmarsat for more than a quarter of a century.

We were founded in 1979 to ensure that ships could stay in constant touch by telephone. In 1999, we became the first intergovernmental organisation to transform into a private company and, in 2005, were floated on the London Stock Exchange.
