    Pivotel Iridium Satellite plans use the Iridium Mobile Satellite Network. Satellite reception limitations and some exclusion zones apply. Visit for a coverage map. All calls are charged in 1 minute increments unless otherwise stated. Prices are in AUD, include GST and are subject to change. Included call value excludes premium calls, calls to special numbers, IDD (international direct dial) calls and premium text. Pivot plans have a 12 month minimum term. Minimum cost over 12 months is defined in the table above. Please note a minimum of 3 services are required for any group plans. You may choose to waive the minimum term by paying a AU$50 fee at the time the service is connected. At the conclusion of the minimum term, the provision of service will continue on a month to month basis unless cancellation of the service is requested in writing. You can suspend your service at any time for AU$15 for up to 180 day in any 12 month period. Service suspension is only allowed up to 3 times in that 12-month period. If you suspend your service during the minimum term, your minimum term period will be extended equivalent to the number of months your service is in suspension. A compatible Iridium Satellite device is required to access the Pivotel Iridium Satellite service (see handset pricing). Pivotel may apply call barring where fraudulent use is suspected or for credit control purposes. You may receive a pro-rata access fee charge on your first Pivotel bill, calculated from the actual date of service connection to the date of your first bill. Actual charges may vary on your statement as charges are rounded to the nearest cent before GST is included. You will receive a bill by email from Pivotel listing any payments you have made during the billing period, and a summary of your service usage to enable you to keep track of your overall service usage and monthly spend. Itemised billed and unbilled service usage is available in the secure Selfcare website at An itemised bill listing all of your service usage events is available on request. You may elect to receive a paper bill by post for an additional fee. Pivotel plans are available to credit approved customers only.
