Globalstar GSP-1700

Globalstar GSP-1700The GSP-1700 ensures users can connect with family, friends and businesses even when their adventures or their business activities take them out of mobile coverage. With patented Qualcomm-based CDMA technology providing crystal-clear voice quality from anywhere within the service footprint, GSP-1700 users experience superior audio performance. Critical communications happen in an instant, with no noticeable time delays on a network that transmits even a whisper. With the availability of Express Data on most data plans, guaranteed data speeds of 9.6kbps provide up to four times the data speed of other mobile satellite data services and enable emails, file transfers, and basic services to happen at high-speed.

With the GSP-1700, you can stay connected even when there is poor or no GSM/mobile coverage. It has superior voice clarity with no noticeable delay or echo and is better than any other satellite phone in the market

The GSP-1700 offers the fastest data speeds of any satellite phone in the marketplace at 9600 bit/s (NOTE that correlating pricing and data speeds of satellite with those of GSM/mobile is not a robust or technically valid comparison. Satellite signals travel to your GSP-1700 phone from space – Low Earth Orbit, an altitude of 1,414km (approximately 876 miles) which is a much greater distance than a signal broadcast from the nearest land-based mobile/cellular telecoms mast.)
