From 1 January, 2009, phoning Inmarsat mobiles will be easier than ever.
All Inmarsat services have now been brought into line with our most advanced voice and high-speed data services, such as BGAN and FleetBroadband.
Just dial the Inmarsat country code +870, followed by the Inmarsat Mobile Number, to reach any Inmarsat customer anywhere in the world.
You can now use the +870 country code for the following Inmarsat services:
Withdrawal of ocean region codes:
From midnight, 24:00 hours GMT, on 31 December, 2008, the four original Inmarsat ocean region codes of +871, +872, +873 and +874 will be discontinued.
In the past, you needed to know in which Inmarsat ocean region our customer was roaming - for example, the Pacific Ocean Region (+872) or Indian Ocean Region (+873).
For the above services simply dial +870 and our global satellite network will locate the Inmarsat terminal. It’s that easy. We recommend you begin dialling the +870 country code with your next call.
