Globalstar Prepares for Final Launch Next Month

Globalstar Satellite Launch

Will Complete Second Generation Satellite Deployment to Restore Full Service

Globalstar is getting ready for the final Soyuz rocket launch of the last six satellites to restore full service for their satellite phone customers. This launch will complete a six year project that includes replacing 24 low-earth-orbit (LEO) satellites. As a result, Globalstar will have the most reliable network and lowest cost satellite phone products available.

Globalstar Ready for Final LaunchUnlimited Evolution II Airtime Pricing and Product Promos Expire 2/28/2013

Globalstar GSP-1700 satellite phoneGlobalstar GSP-1700 pricing was reduced by 50% when service declined back in 2008 and 2009. We are expecting the GSP-1700 satellite phone price to increase sometime this year after the service is restored to normal. The GSP-1700 promo and GSP-1700 hands-free vehicle bundle are set to expire at the end of next month.

The Evolution II unlimited airtime service plan may or may not be continued. In 2005 when all Globalstar satellites were in operation, their service fee was about $1.00 per minute.  It will take a few weeks after the launch to put the satellites in operation but expect price increases as service improves and demand increases. All legacy equipment including the GSP-1600 will continue to operate on the upgraded CDMA network.

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.

Globalstar Home Area and Roaming Charges
