ZOLEO will initially be available at 125 regional and rural outlets across the country such as Kalgoorlie in Western Australia and Mount Isa in Queensland.

“Additionally, ZOLEO will also appeal to caravaners, boaters, skiers and hikers visiting regional Australia as the device allows subscribers to call for help and to keep in touch with friends and family from anywhere.”

ZOLEO connects with phones and tablets to provide seamless global messaging that can work both in and out of mobile coverage zones. Users can message over satellite, cellular of wifi.

It also boasts SOS alerts which are monitored 24/7 and GPS location which can be shared with others.
