Thuraya SatSleeve Hotspot
It’s Your World. Your Phone. Your Call.
The SatSleeve Hotspot supports the communication needs of all smartphone users - from frequent travelers and adventurous explorers to corporate and NGO users.
Created for customers preferring to use their smartphone separated from the satellite unit, with the SatSleeve Hotspot, a portable Wi-Fi Hotspot, you have the range and the room to move while you make calls, use email, send messages, or enjoy your favorite social media apps in the comfort of being in an indoor location while the hotspot is outside and facing the satellite.
The SatSleeve Hotspot comes with a stand inside the package and is compatible with various iOS and Android models.

Calls and Text Messages in Satellite Mode
Use your smartphone in satellite mode when there is no terrestrial network available to call and send text messages using your existing list of contacts.
Send and receive emails from wherever you are.
Access your apps while you’re on the move – Social Media, Instant Messaging, information apps and many more.
Simply connect your smartphone via Wi-Fi to the satellite unit and stay connected. The sound is now routed through the smartphone, allowing users to make their calls directly from the smartphone.
The SatSleeve Hotspot App is available as a free download from the App Store or from Google Play. Our app is available in 12 languages.
This App is applicable for SatSleeve Hotspot and SatSleeve+ only and not for previous SatSleeve models.

A World of Choices
Thuraya’s reliable and uninterrupted satellite network enables you to stay connected via satellite mode anywhere under its coverage area across Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.

SatSleeve Hotspot comes with a stand in the package, making your life even more convenient while you’re on-the-move.
To increase the speed when loading websites, the SatSleeve Hotspot can be used with 3 different access points (APNs).
