Globalstar launches Sat-Fi

Globalstar launches Sat-Fi
Globalstar Europe Services has today announced the launch of its new Sat-Fi service in Europe, Middle East and Africa region, offering users voice and data connectivity beyond the range of the mobile phone network.

The system lowers costs by using Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) technology. Using the Sat-Fi hotspot, the system allows up to eight individuals to make and receive voice calls and email simultaneously, using an app on wi-fi enabled devices including tablets, smartphones and laptops, with SMS to be added in due course.

“Sat-Fi’s performance provides the fastest, most affordable, mobile satellite data speeds - four times faster than the competition - and the clearest voice communications in the industry,” the company claims in a statement.
