The Soracom Group will implement an organizational restructuring on October 1, 2021, which is intended to improve the efficiency of our global operations. This restructuring will consist of consolidating certain functions related to our Canadian customers that are currently handled by our United Kingdom subsidiary into our United States of America subsidiary.
Please rest assured that this restructuring will not interrupt or otherwise affect Soracom services that you are currently using. We are simply modifying relationships into North America which better reflects your business and ours.

In accordance with this restructuring, a portion of our terms and conditions will be revised and will become effective on October 1, 2021 (hereafter the “Effective Date”). These changes will affect all Terms and Conditions for all SORACOM services. For example purposes, we provide the corresponding changes to the General Terms and Conditions for SORACOM Air Global Services (“General Air T&Cs”) below following an explanation of each change, but corresponding provisions of the other applicable Terms and Conditions listed on the SORACOM Website shall be modified in the same way.
- The service provider will change to the United States of America Company “SORACOM GLOBAL, INC.” (hereafter “SORACOM USA”), and all rights and obligations of our United Kingdom subsidiary, with respect to Soracom services provided to Canadian customers, will be transferred to SORACOM USA on the Effective Date. Article 1.1 (Application of General Terms and Conditions) of the General Air T&Cs will now read as follows:
“These general terms and conditions as well as the specific regulations (collectively, the “General Terms”) govern the use of SORACOM Air Global Service by customers in the USA and Canada.
