Posted: 28-Aug-2013 [Source: Globalstar]

[Globalstar's second generation satellite network is now in service.]

Covington, LA -- Globalstar, Inc. (GSAT) announced today that all second generation satellites are now in full commercial service, completing the world's most modern satellite communications network. With all satellites in service, Globalstar has re-emerged as the leader in mobile satellite communications.

"As the first in the mobile satellite communications industry to establish a new and modern network, Globalstar is leaps and bounds ahead of the competition," says Jay Monroe, CEO of Globalstar. "With the most modern network in place, Globalstar customers will be connected when it matters most, in emergencies, to continue business, or to connect with a loved one."

In 2006, Globalstar took the initiative to design, build and launch the most modern satellite constellation. More than a billion dollars later, its success can be heard with Globalstar customers experiencing superior voice quality, connection, ease of use, and length of time to maintain a call. Duplex service has been fully restored and Globalstar customers are returning rapidly. In a recent earnings call, Globalstar reported that new duplex voice and data subscribers doubled in the second quarter and minutes of use increased 41%.

Globalstar's new network supports its current lineup of voice, duplex and simplex data products and services, including its SPOT-branded consumer products which have initiated more than 2,500 rescues worldwide. These new satellites have a 15-year design life, doubling the life span of Globalstar's earlier satellites.

Globalstar is the only MSS provider using the patented Qualcomm-based CDMA technology, which provides crystal-clear voice quality from anywhere within its global footprint. Calls occur with no noticeable time delays on a network that transmits even a whisper.

Combined with the 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.
