- TR Telecom provides a Satellite phone service, and does not recommend its data provision service be used for Streaming music or video
- The billing structure for data via Satellite phone networks is based upon time spent connected to the service, rather than the quantity of data consumed.
- Given this fact, the key determinant of the cost of accessing data via the Satellite service is driven by the ability of the hardware device used to access the network
- TR Telecom’s hardware range includes devices that connect at speeds ranging from 27 Kbps to 2.4 Kbps (refer table below)
