Captain Keith Colburn

F/V Wizard - Deadliest Catch TV Show


Colburn works in a traditional business, crab fishing in the Bering Sea. But the star of the Discovery Network hit series considers modern communications an essential tool of the trade.

“Today's connectivity is through our smart phones with texting, emails, and voice,” says Colburn. “Staying in contact with onshore vendors is vital to my remote fishing business.”
 


“Connectivity and communication is right at my fingertips—keeping me in touch, improving the way I do business, and allowing me to stay closer to my kids.” 
 

 

From his boat, the F/V Wizard, Colburn needs to maintain business continuity through a high-quality voice and data service.

The Globalstar 9600 allows this Deadliest Catch TV Show star to stay in touch, no matter how far off shore. The hotspot delivers reliable satellite communication directly to Colburn’s smart phone.

“All of my communication is now simple, immediate and consistent,” he says. “Connectivity and communication is right at my fingertips—keeping me in touch, improving the way I do business, and allowing me to stay closer to my kids.”
