Re: ssb v.satphone ?who's the winner
Do you currently use Globalstar? Do you know someone who does?
I have followed Globalstar for the last few years. They always seem to be in a race to get satellites up to fill in their coverage gaps. Their pricing is incredibly cheap compared to the other sat vendors. Almost to good to be true. Then they have this calculator to use to time the start your calls during time of best coverage. It makes me really skeptical.
If Globalstar really does have a quality solution it would be tough to argue against them, damn cheap. I need to make this same decision in two years time prior to being the Caribbean. We will need quality voice comms back to the states.
I would need some good referrals before I would take a leap with Globalstar.
