Globalstar is an American company that began bringing satellite voice and coverage data to users in 1999. Today, it offers both voice and data service in six continents.
This provider of satellite solutions brings superior satellite communication to the masses via a Low Earth Orbiting constellation consisting of 48 orbiting satellites. They sit 700 miles above earth in various locations to create as wide of a reach as possible. This low altitude, as compared to geostationary satellites that operate 22,000 miles above Earth, is what allows for low-latency data transmission.
Via land or sea, both commercial and recreational users operating within Globalstar’s expansive coverage area will find quality communication service no matter which product they choose to use.
Products Operating on the Globalstar Network
Globalstar offers a wide range of satellite voice and data products to meet the wide range of needs among its customers including SPOT Life-Saving Technology, voice and data devices, as well as commercial IoT solutions.
SPOT Life-Saving Technology
Perhaps you need nothing more on your remote adventure than a safety connection should you need it. We understand that part of the allure of going off the grid is the ability to completely unplug, so you may want to leave the satellite phone behind. What you never what to compromise, however, is your life.
A SPOT Global Satellite GPS Messenger is the perfect solution for the person who prefers to avoid typical communication service that a phone can provide. But your loved ones and colleagues will be at ease knowing you are OK, and you’ll appreciate the peace of mind that you can get help with the push of a button.

Voice and Data
Portability and reliability are the name of the game when it comes to your satellite phone. And with reliability comes knowing that you’ll have a crisp and clear connection on both sides of the call. And what about data transmission (email, text messaging, social media posting, etc.)? You should expect nothing less than the ability to relay information quickly…that’s what you’re paying for after all.
