The Thuraya SatSleeve+ and Hotspot provide you with access to emails, instant messaging, apps and basic Internet connectivity in satellite mode. If you choose to access the Internet in satellite mode with the SatSleeve+ or Hotspot, please note that satellite data speeds are not as fast as 3G or 4G terrestrial networks. Data download speeds in satellite mode are up to 60 kbps for downloads and up to 15 kbps for uploads on GmPRS.
- For the best internet experience using your Thuraya SatSleeve+ or Hotspot:
- When emailing or messaging, reduce the size of images to decrease the overall message size
- Use mobile versions of websites and Apps (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, etc.) rather than desktop versions of websites
- Use web browsers that offer the option of text-only browsing or use websites that convert webpages into text-only pages, e.g. Opera Mini
- Use websites such as textise.net to convert pages to text-only pages
