Globalstar Satellite Phone Overview and Tips

Globalstar Satellite Phone Emergency Communications

Globalstar Satellite Phone Voice Network Coverage

In the event land-based cellular and wireline communications are disrupted due to storm power outages, the Globalstar satellite phone network may be the only way to communicate. Globalstar GSP-1700 phones rely on low earth orbiting satellites instead of towers for system access. It is important to note you must be outdoors when a satellite is overhead near your location. With the successful launch and upgrade of the satellite network, Globalstar’s Call Times Tool is no longer needed. As of June 2013, voice network access is 95% or better within the coverage area.
