Hurricane Preparedness

GlobalCom has prepared for the hurricane season by stocking one of the largest inventories of satellite phones in the nation.

We recommend you must prepare “before” the hurricane season. It has been our experience prior to a hurricane hitting the coast the tremendous demand for satellite phones could result in delays in delivery and issues with shippers being able to deliver into areas where a hurricane is projected to hit the coast. Globalcom highly recommends arranging the purchase or rental of satellite phones prior to hurricane season.

GlobalCom recommends our flagship product the Iridium phone which will give coverage everywhere in the U.S. as well as the planet even in the event your local telephone infrastructure is disrupted by a hurricane.

You can rent the Iridium phone. Rental units will be in short supply during hurricane season they will be on a first come first serve bases. Be prepared and arrange your rental unit prior to hurricane season. Learn more Iridium Phone Rentals
