GNSS receivers have internal 4G GSM modems to simplify connecting to RTK networks. The iG9 GSM modems will work with most USA carriers except for Verizon.
You can activate your own cellular data service or you can use the GSM cards which we include with every most 4G/5G receivers. They will NOT work with 3G receivers.
If you choose to use our SIM cards activation will be very simple.
Our rates are very competitive, there is no activation fee and there is no contract:
We can bundle the cost of a 1-year's service with the cost of your equipment and your equipment will arrive pre-activated. Or you can choose to activate a data plan on the pre-supplied cards at any time.
Why purchase a data plan from iGage?
Frequently asked questions
|How much data will my iG9 use?|
A highest data use scenario is a fully enabled GNSS Base (GPS + GLO + GAL + BDS + SBAS + QZS) receiver (like the iG9) tracking 31 satellites, all signals (L2C, L5, GLO-L3), broadcasting RTCM3.2 MSM. This configuration will transfer ~34,000 bytes of correction data per minute:
Typical networks in the USA track GPS + GLO only and transfer ~18,000 bytes per minute while tracking 16 satellites:
250-Mb per month is plenty of data for most survey and engineering users, however if you plan on using the iG9's built-in hotspot choose a plan with enough data for the receiver and the attached computer's use.
|Cellular Data Plans for other devices|
We offer discounted data subscription plans on multiple carriers with no contracts, annual payments and easy configuration.
Our customers are surveyors and engineers with single receiver modems to large enterprise organizations with multiple devices. Our data SIM cards work with both GSM (ANET) and CDMA (VNET) SIM devices.
SIM cards are $5 each and are shipped by USPS Mail.
If you have a single modem in a GNSS receiver, an automated tractor, a security camera, a remote GNSS CORS station or even a UAV tracking device, we can provide simple, no-contract cellular connectivity utilizing the top networks at great prices with no setup fees.
