AST have always helped out on our projects with the provision of satellite communication equipment which is so vital when you’re travelling huge distances, across remote areas. We use the sat phones to communicate with our loved ones and the office back in London when we’re out of mobile phone range and the BGAN is vital for us to send footage and images back for use on our website.
