Powered by the world’s first second generation LEO constellation, from Globalstar
Globalstar’s satellite phone services are the highest quality, most affordable Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) offering on the market. Globalstar’s GSP-1700 Satellite Phone and GSP-2900 Fixed Phone System give marine users a lifeline to the shore while remaining reasonably priced. Satellite phones are no longer a luxury, but a necessity in staying connected in emergencies and keeping in touch with friends, family and business associates while on the water.
Globalstar is the first mobile satellite services provider to launch a second generation low-earth-orbit constellation, placing the provider years ahead of the competition. And, Globalstar is the only MSS provider using the patented Qualcomm-based CDMA technology which provides crystal-clear voice quality from anywhere within the global footprint. Critical communications happen in an instant, with no noticeable time delays on a network that transmits even a whisper. With the availability of Express Data on most of Globalstar’s data plans, standard data speeds of 9600bps accelerate to 28000bps, enabling emails, file transfers, and basic services to occur at high-speed.
Connections are seamless, with the ability to secure a local number on Globalstar’s GSP-1700 Satellite Phone in most areas. This phone’s features make it best in class with a compact size, lightweight, and long-life battery.
Equipping vessels with access to multiple RJ-11 jacks is simple with Globalstar’s GSP-2900 Fixed Phone System. As many as five standard or cordless phones can be connected to the GSP-2900 Fixed Phone System, providing dial-tone accessibility virtually anywhere. Internet, email and voicemail capabilities are included, allowing connections to occur even while at sea.
Larry Rosenfeld, navigator for Team Adventure, a non-profit foundation dedicated to teaching children through hands-on adventures, gave this testimonial after using Globalstar’s satellite services during a cross Atlantic voyage:
“We have coordinated standby rescue from the Canadian Coast Guard, temporary repairs at a shipyard in Nova Scotia, redirected our air shipment to France for the finish, sent bulletins out to ABC News who had been covering the attempt with two cameramen on board, sent pictures for the many websites who are covering the attempt and have been able to call our families to tell them we are OK. The ability to manage outgoing calls, critical incoming calls and data has been superb. Globalstar connects faster than any modem and works transparently on the computer. ”
Globalstar’s GSP-1700 Satellite Phone and GSP-2900 Fixed Phone System are significantly less expensive than any other satellite products available. Prices start at $499 for mobile and $699 for fixed systems, with service plans from $300 annually and include unlimited SMS inbound messages on the GSP-1700 Satellite Phone. Satellite connections serve a crucial role in emergency situations, providing a lifeline when needed most. Satellite capabilities also connect modern ship captains to their businesses remotely. And when far from home, satellite phones enable seamen to stay connected with land-line quality voice services. Equipping a vessel with this essential tool is no longer out of reach.
