Unlike Iridium phones, every Globalstar satellite phone comes with a locally-based phone number—no more confusing international dialing procedures required. This also makes it cheaper for people to call your globalstar satellite phone from their landline or cellular phones.

Using the optional GIK-1700 installation kit, you can easily create a complete satellite phone system in your vehicle or maritime vessel.

Get Online with Globalstar Express Data

Express Data service is included FREE with most Globalstar service plans. See Airtime Pricing for current rates.

Globalstar Express Data will accelerate web-based file transfers, uploading and downloading of all native FTP file transfers, and all types of email from simple web-based email systems like Hotmail and Yahoo Mail to POP3 and SMTP based email systems such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express and Microsoft Exchange. Additionally, email attachments including Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and others will also be accelerated.

Download Globalstar Express Data Software

ADVISORY:
Globalstar advertises that Express Data will accelerate web browsing, which it technically does. However, Express Data provides a maximum compressed data speed of 28kbps. Realistically, this is simply too slow for an effective, efficient and enjoyable web browsing experience—so we do not recommend it. That being said, it is quite suitable for downloading information like GRIB weather files.

Monthly and Annual Globalstar Airtime Plans

When you buy your Globalstar satellite phone with an airtime plan, you will be charged for the one-time activation fee of the monthly or annual plan that you select, plus the price of the phone. Each month, you will receive an invoice from Globalstar for the monthly subscription cost of your plan, plus any billable airtime that you’ve consumed.

We offer monthly and annual airtime plans for all of our globalstar products. Both monthly and annual plans come with included airtime—once all included airtime is consumed, usage is billed on a per-minute basis. The subscription fees for monthly and annual plans are billed on a monthly basis—but included airtime can be consumed differently for each type of plan

What’s the Difference between Annual and Monthly Plans?

If both plan types are billed on a monthly basis, what’s the difference?

There are two main differences between Globalstar’s annual and monthly plans:

  1. An annual plan automatically renews on a 12 month contract year after year. A monthly plan has an initial term of 12 months and then automatically renews on month-to-month terms following the first year of service.
  2. Airtime minutes that are included with your monthly plan are valid on a month-to-month basis—if you don’t use them, you lose them! Airtime minutes that are included with your annual plan are valid for the entire year and can be consumed in any amount, at any point, throughout the year.

Why Choose an Annual Plan over a Monthly Plan?

Each monthly plan comes with a set amount of minutes per month—these minutes are not cumulative from month-to-month meaning that if you don’t use them, you lose them.

There will likely be some months when you do not use your Globalstar device, meaning you didn’t take advantage of the included airtime—which you’ve essentially paid for through the monthly fee of your plan.

On the other hand, there will likely be months when you use your Globalstar device quite often—potentially consuming more airtime than is included with your plan that month. This means you’ll have to pay additional per-minute charges on top of the monthly fee.

So, Annual plans are a good choice if:

You have seasonal requirements and will use up more airtime in certain months than in others. In these cases, an annual plan gives you more flexibility by providing a larger amount of included (“paid for”) minutes that can be consumed at one time.
