Iridium contract costs

Line rental is paid in blocks of 1 month, and allows the RockBLOCK to exchange information with the Iridium satellite network. You only pay for months in which you wish to use the RockBLOCK. No annual contract is required. Line rental costs £12.00 per month and includes access to the RockBLOCK Management System for managing your devices.

Credits are used each time you transmit. 1 credit is used per 50 bytes (or part thereof) of message sent or received. 1 credit is also used if you check your mailbox and there are no messages waiting (A mailbox check). Credits do not expire unless you do not use your account at all for 12 months. Credits are shared/pooled between all of the devices on your account

Postpaid data tariffs

Please note, whilst our pay-as-you-go tariffs offer great flexibility for development purposes, we know they are not suitable for everyone. If you are planning a large deployment of devices (100+) and are willing to commit to airtime contracts of 12 months or more, please get in touch. We have access to various tariffs which may suit you better.

Can I use my RockBLOCK with a different service provider?

Yes. We try to keep the hardware cost of RockBLOCK as low as possible. If you won't be activating RockBLOCK with Rock Seven, then we charge a fee to 'unlock' the device, and make it available for another service provider to activate for you.

Can I use other SBD devices with RockBLOCK contracts and web services?

Of course! If you have an existing collection of Iridium Edge, or other SBD devices, or if you've integrated the bare Iridium 9603N module into your product, we'd be happy to provide all of the same services as for RockBLOCK.

Is a better price available for large volumes of data/RockBLOCKs?

Yes. Please contact us with your request, mentioning the number of units/data amount you would be interested in.
