Iridium Direct Internet service provides Internet connectivity for your computer by using the Iridium satellite phone as a modem. This service utilizes transparent compression, resulting in effective throughput data rates higher than the nominal 2.4 Kbps. The actual throughput will depend on the content being transferred and the protocol used (graphics and images will result in lower throughput).
Direct Internet 3 software, which is free of charge to all Iridium subscribers, supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS operating systems.
