Globalstar pulled a Beyoncé with this one by introducing a brand-new satellite phone and making it available for sale on the exact same day. 

That's right - the Sat-Fi is available for sale

Globalstar Sat-FiWhat Is The Globalstar Sat-Fi? 

The Globalstar Sat-Fi is a satellite WiFi and VoIP hotspot that allows you to make satellite calls over your smartphone, send and receive compression email, and post to popular social media sites. 

With Sat-Fi, you can use your existing smartphones to send and receive voice or data communications via the Globalstar network, offering seamless voice and data connectivity when beyond the range of cellular. User can port over their existing phone numbers or use a newly assigned US-based number.

Through a convenient app and Sat-Fi satellite WiFi hot spot, subscribers will be able to easily send and receive calls, email and SMS text messages anywhere within Globalstar’s footprint from their own device.

Globalstar Sat-Fi Apps

Easily connect your WiFi-enabled device to the Sat-Fi device with the custom, convenient apps. Sat-Fi allows you to send and receive fast, compressed email, post to social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, and browse the web with compression increasing your speed by 3 x 5 times.

There's a right unit for everybody - call or email for a free consultation to find out which one is for you.
