Monthly Globalstar Plans

Monthly Globalstar plans come with a large bundle of included minutes every month. Unused minutes do not roll-over into the next month of service.

Monthly airtime options are hassle-free and you will always have airtime available when you need it. There is a recurring monthly access fee to keep your subscription active, and any airtime consumed over-and-above the included minute-bundle is billed on a pay-as-you-go “per-minute” basis. Monthly Globalstar plans require a 12 month initial contract, and renew on a month-to-month basis after that, until cancelled (see the “billing details” tab above for more information).

Call rates for incoming and outgoing calls are billed on a per-minute basis once all included monthly airtime is consumed in a given month.

Every Globalstar phone is given an in-country, “local” phone number, when compared to any other satellite network—it’s much cheaper for people to call you, and it’s cheaper for them to receive a call from you as well.

Globalstar Coverage

globalstar coverage map

Globalstar’s voice coverage is adequate in the primary regions specified on this map, they do not provide complete global coverage.

Like all other satellite communications networks, Globalstar relies on a network of ground stations (gateways), which provide connectivity from their satellites to local telephone networks.

However, unlike other satellite communications networks (Iridium and Inmarsat) Globalstar’s network is designed so that a satellite must be in view of a gateway in order to provide service to any users it may see. If there are no gateways to cover certain areas (such as areas of the South Pacific and the polar regions), service in these regions cannot be provided—even if the satellites may fly over them.

As of May 2012, Globalstar’s voice and full-duplex data services are currently non-functional over much of Africa, the South Asian subcontinent and most mid-ocean regions due to lack of nearby gateways on the ground. Learn more about Globalstar satellite phone service.
