28 May Globalstar’s Latest
Posted at 12:38h
The latest offering from Globalstar targets the gap between handheld satellite phones and the high speed Inmarsat and Iridium terminals with their equally high price tags. The RAS-2 serves as a mobile hot spot for satellite voice, text and data service. The data speed of 72 KBPS allows lite web browsing, access to e-mail and the ability to download the latest weather. In the commercial fishing industry it lets the skipper keep in touch with the office, monitor fish prices, and have the ability to provide access to crew members to text or call their families. We have a few customers with remote cabins who think the RAS-2 with its remote antenna is the perfect solution to connect their cabin to voice, text, web and e-mail service. Unlimited airtime service for the RAS-2 is $150 a month which allows it to fit nicely in the lower middle price range.
