Thuraya XT-Hotspot  WiFi Access to the Thuraya XT Satellite Phone

Accessory adds WiFi to the Thuraya XT Satellite phone

The Thuraya XT-Hotspot enables easy and economical internet access over Thuraya's mobile satellite network with fast download speeds of up to 60 kbps. The XT-Hotspot uses the GmPRS connection of the Thuraya XT handset for quick and secure internet connectivity in the most remote locations. Users can now access their email and browse the web using their favorite WiFi device (smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc.).

Great Arbor Communications is the exclusive designer and manufacturer of the XT-Hotspot.

How does it work

The XT-Hotspot connects to the XT phone via a supplied standard USB hub. The hotspot has an internal battery which can power  the unit for up to 4 hours. Alternatively the unit can be powered through the supplied 110/220 volt DC adapter.  Upon powering up, the hotspot opens us a GmPRS connection to the Thuraya network using the XT handset as a packet data modem and allows authorized WiFi devices in the vicinity to share this packet data connection.
Note the XT-Hotspot only works with the XT phone and does NOT work with the XT Dual.
