TORONTO, Ontario Globe-trotting business travelers and workers at remote sites are invited to take advantage of enhanced Iridium satellite phone services available from ROADPOST. Roadpost is offering flexibility and features for satellite services that international cell phone users enjoy.

A brand new offering for Roadpost’s Iridium service is the Pooled and Carry Forward feature. Rather than losing unused minutes at the end of each month, subscribers can carry forward minutes for a period of 12 months. The new pooled services feature also allows organizations to share minutes on a single subscription plan across multiple users.

“Roadpost is the only service provider in North America to offer Pooled and Carry Forward plans for satellite services,” said president and CEO Morris Shawn. “This is a significant breakthrough for international users, since they can now enjoy the benefits of subscription per-minute rateswhich range from 15% to 25% less than rental rateswithout having to forego minutes at the end of each month. This is especially key for users of satellite services, since travel tends to be seasonal and usage is not consistent. Having the ability to carry forward and pool minutes on a subscription plan can certainly translate into overall savings, and better management of resources.”

The company recently introduced a rush delivery service for Iridium rental and subscription customers in North America. For a $20 premium, Roadpost will guarantee next business day delivery by 10:30 a.m. EST for serviceable requests received after 3 p.m. the previous day. For rental services, it has also expanded its loss and theft coverage to include damage.

Roadpost offers international cellular service, remote Internet access, and Iridium and Thuraya satellite services. The company welcomes individual customers and corporate accounts. For complete information on hardware, services and rates, visit www.roadpost.com.
