Satellite Phone in Bahamas

We plan to take our first extended cruise this fall for six months. We will be leaving the Chesapeake Bay in mid-October, traveling the ICW and spending 2-3 months in the Bahamas. We'll be able to use our cell phones along the US east coast, but will need a satellite phone for personal and minor business use in the Bahamas. We've heard conflicting statuses on Globalstar's performance in the Bahamas. We'd appreciate hearing your personal current experiences with Globalstar, Iridium, or another service in the Bahamas. Also, what's the best way to connect to the internet without SSB in remote areas in the Bahamas. Thanks! Linda
