"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."

Globalstar is the first mobile satellite services provider to deploy a second-generation constellation of low-earth-orbit (LEO) satellites.
