Flytrex Live 3G streams flight telemetry data using 3G GSM network. To start using the Live 3G you will need to get a micro SIM with data plan that uses 3G GSM network from a local carrier.
3G GSM, the technology used by the Live 3G, is the most commonly used network around the world today and you will definitely find at least one, and probably more, local carriers that you can use with the Live 3G in your country without a problem.
In terms of data usage, the Live 3G uses compressed data protocols and therefore consumes very little data. Most chances are that the smallest and cheapest data plan available will do great for the Live 3G. See FAQ #15 for more details about the Live 3G data usage.
To help you get started with the Live 3G we've collected below details about carriers and data plans used by our pilots. Please note that even if your country is not listed you can definitely use the Live 3G in your country with any of the local GSM carriers.
