"With the SPOT Global Phone, that same level of reliable, enterprise-class connectivity and performance is now available to meet the outdoor recreation market's need for affordable, easy-to-use mobile communications with reliable two-way communication and data access, even when their adventures take them off the grid."

SPOT Global Phone Features

  • Compact size: 5.3"H x 2.2"W x 1.5"D (135mm H X 55mm W H X 37mm D)
  • Lightweight: 7 ounces (198.5 grams)
  • Satellite-based technology
  • Superior voice clarity with imperceptible delay and echo
  • Backlit color display optimized for outdoor daytime viewing
  • Long-life battery: 4 hours talk time, 36 hours standby
  • Data capable enabling email and file transfers

  • 911 emergency service access

Globalstar is the first mobile satellite services provider to deploy a second-generation constellation of low-earth-orbit (LEO) satellites. Earlier this year, Globalstar successfully completed the launch of additional second generation satellites that deliver significant network connectivity improvements including reliability and crystal clear voice quality. Combined with the Company's affordable and award-winning suite of consumer SPOT retail products, Globalstar offers an extensive lineup of mobile satellite services that meet the needs of the broadest range of customers around the globe.

Pricing and Availability

The SPOT Global Phone is the first satellite phone to be offered in major retail outlets including London Drugs and Mountain Equipment Co-op, and is also available online and through a dealer network, expanding the reach of the mobile satellite service (MSS) market beyond oil fields and commercial fishing. The SPOT Global Phone retails at $499 CDN plus a required subscription service that provides industry-leading voice quality starting at $24.99 monthly or as low as 25 cents per minute.
