It works over Thuraya’s L-Band satellite network as well as GSM 2G/3G/4G/LTE networks, and offers fast and simple connectivity on the move in remote areas that are normally beyond the reach of smartphones.
The Thuraya X5-Touch also has a dedicated SOS button, which is easy to use in times of distress – even when the phone is switched off.
