RBGAN - Regional Broadband Global Area Network

Short for Regional Broadband Global Area Network, the RBGAN network provides email and satellite internet access direct to portable terminals. The terminal is roughly the size of a laptop computer, and is connected to a standard PC using the plug and play features of the modem itself (USB, Ethernet, or Bluetooth).

RBGAN service is based on Internet Protocol (IP) and Packet-Data technologies. Subscribers are usually charged by the amount of data one transfers (per-Mbyte) rather than per minute service, where the charge is based on the amount of data sent and received, not the total time spent online.
