Thuraya Satellite Phone Coverage Map

Thuraya Coverage Map

Thuraya's robust satellite network provides coverage in the most remote locations, ensuring congestion-free satellite communications to keep you connected at all times. From innovative satellite design to the reliability of each Thuraya device and accessory, we provide a truly superior satellite communication solution beyond the boundaries of terrestrial systems and cellular networks.

The Thuraya network does not cover north or south America.

Understanding the Thuraya Coverage Map
The dark blue area on the Thuraya Coverage Map represents the primary coverage region of the Thuraya network. A list of covered countries is also available. There may be weaker coverage in the lighter blue areas.
Even in the primary coverag­e locations, coverage can be obstructed by nearby terrain features such as mountains or trees. To make phone calls, you need to have a direct line of site between yourself and the Thuraya satellite.
It is recommended that Thuraya users make sure they know how to make calls before leaving for a remote location. If you have a pre-paid Thuraya SIM card, make sure to know how to check the account balance and reload it.
With a GSM-cellular capable Thuraya phones like the Thuraya XT LITE, there will be additional GSM cellular coverage in many countries. Regional operators will charge different rates and some advanced features of the Thuraya phone might not be supported by all GSM operators. As a general rule, GSM operators in third world countries will charge more for calls than the cost of Thuraya satellite-mode calls.
