Globalstar Annual Enterprise Seasonal Airtime Service Plans
Enterprise plans are billed annually for seasonal users who may use their data on an irregular schedule. With these plans the airtime expires at the end of the term rather than monthly. The Enterprise 480 plan is the lowest cost annual plan and is recommended for emergency managers or public-safety personnel who need backup communications.
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.
Globalstar Home Area and Roaming Charges
Globalstar phones activated underUSA rate plans include airtime for calls made from the Home service area to the US and Canada. The Home area includes the US, Canada, and the Caribbean – but not Mexico. Long distance is included for calls to the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
