TERRESTRIAL LOW POWER SERVICE (TLPS)
Globalstar's satellite spectrum is located adjacent to the Public Wi-Fi Band and can be easily utilized to IMMEDIATELY increase the Nation's Wi-Fi capacity by a full third, providing a much better wireless experience to the millions of consumers who now depend daily on mobile broadband capabilities for work and play.
Globalstar refers to this innovative new service as TLPS and petitioned the FCC for authority to offer it in November of 2012. On November 1, 2013, the FCC took a positive step forward by issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to commence a formal proceeding that would allow Globalstar to deploy TLPS to the public.
Our initial test results show that TLPS can achieve 5 times the distance and 4 times the throughput capacity of Public Wi-Fi. Learn more about TLPS and our initial test results at the links below
