Littleton, CO (PRWEB) December 10, 2004
After the recent hurricanes hit Florida and knocked out power and communications for millions of residents for days and weeks on end, Globalstar satellite phones proved to be an indispensable tool. Working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Governor’s Office, and various Globalstar agents and distributors, the company was able to provide satellite voice and data services to emergency workers and citizens in damaged areas left with little or no terrestrial or cellular telephone service.
“During times of emergency, one realizes the importance of the basic essential services that we all take for granted on a day to day basis,” said Dennis Allen, Senior VP of Sales for Globalstar LLC. “Globalstar was able to provide satellite telephone service when many other alternatives were often unavailable due to damage or destruction of the local telecommunication infrastructure, power outages or other issues such as insufficient calling capacity.”
“The Globalstar phones were great,” added Randy Pierce, Site Coordinator for the State of Florida.
“We were able to count on them and they made the task easier to deal with, by allowing us to communicate and coordinate the emergency efforts into those areas affected by the hurricane.Â Globalstar also shipped another 300 phones after Frances hit. FEMA ended up purchasing all the phones used in the hurricane hit area.
Globalstar provides superior voice quality and the industry’s best data call speeds and success rates.
There are many factors that go into a decision to purchase satellite telephones. None are more important than the ability to complete calls with clarity and reliability. In a recent technical study performed by independent research firm Frost & Sullivan, Globalstar has been shown to consistently outperform its main competitor in both voice and data transmission.
