Globalstar Satellite Phone Now Available for Emergency Use

By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor

A sad but true fact is that hurricane season  is now in full view. Are you prepared? If not, it is time to get ready and it’s easy to do with the help of satellite phones that can provide you with a fully dependable communication service at the time when you need it the most.  These satellite phones are now being offered from Globalstar (News - Alert).

Globalstar's satellite phones will ensure users can leverage a solution that powers crystal clear voice quality and dependable coverage. These phones are also affordable with the handheld Globalstar GSP-1700 satellite phone starting at $499 and emergency airtime plans starting at $24.99 per month.

Since a hurricane equal to the strength of Sandy can hit the shore anytime within the next few months, the need for satellite communications during these type of situations is crucial for the Flynn Power Plant in Holtsville, Long Island. Regular communication during and after the storm can proved to be invaluable and life saver.

Frank A. Miller, a New York Power Authority Principal Communications Engineer said in a statement, “Once the plant made the initial call via Globalstar, we all breathed a little easier, the whole purpose of our Globalstar implementation over the years was for events just like this one. We are quite satisfied with the service we received in the time of this emergency.”

The National Oceanic (News - Alert) and Atmospheric Administration has recently issued its predictions for the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season and forecasts above average storm activity.

Jay Monroe, Globalstar Chairman and CEO said, "We are the most affordable satellite phone provider available, and coupled with our crystal clear voice quality our customers are receiving superior performance whenever they pick up a Globalstar phone."

Globalstar's GSP-2900 satellite fixed phone system is available with the price tag (News - Alert) of $699 and suitable for business or home owners during a power loss. The system can be deployed safely and securely on a rooftop to bring a working phone line inside that can then be connected to any standard phone.
