Satellite phone recommendations

Looking for recommendations for a Satellite phone rental. I have never rented one before, and there seem to be a hundred companies online that rent these things, but I would rather go with a business someone has used. Going to be doing some off the grid trail riding (ATV's & SxS's) for a week in WV and will need a line. Apparently, there is zero coverage in the Hatfield area for usual cell providers.

I do a ton of military and gov business with outfitter. Good people. Just make sure to get Iridium. Not sure you can even get or that they carry service from the "other guys" who's sat's were literally falling from the sky. Just remember sat phones are not a "get outa jail free card" as some expect. Time or day and location all factor in to the ability to make calls and use data. Partner it with a REAL PLB and your ability to call for help drastically increases.
