Satellite Subsidy

Satellite Phone Subsidy Scheme

The Government Satellite Phone Subsidy Scheme closed on the 31st March 2014 at 5pm EST! Only customers that have been approved for the Government Subsidy will be eligable to use this towards the purchase of a new handset.

The Government Subsidy Office is no longer accepting Satellite Subsidy Applications

Step 1

Review our products and decide on a satellite phone. All products that are supported by the scheme have a purchase option for the subsidy scheme that you can select.

Step 2

Checkout the goods that you wish to purchase. Ensure that you have checked the purchase option for the government subsidy so that we know you wish to apply for this. Once this is complete you will receive an order confirmation email containing a list of desired goods and an order number. Please keep this for later reference.

The scheme requires that you get approval prior to the actual purchase of the goods and that the final purchase price is the original price minus the subsidy. Therefore if you select in the purchase options that you would like the government subsidy we will not request payment until you have been granted approval and the final amount has been approved. In the event the subsidy is not approved we will cancel the order.
