They are owned by Globalstar and use Globalstar's network. However, the data portion of the Globalstar network hasn't had the problems the voice side has had.

You would of course need to find more information of which satellite system they use and maybe some feedback from current users.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
