Sat data coverage is for Europe, N & central Africa, and Asia, ....... for north and south america and adjacent atlantic/pacific not so much according to their map , ( http://www.thuraya.com/network-coverage ) .
However this is very very exciting news and bodes well for the future of consumer marine Sat data, Hooray!
