Improved mobile satellite voice and data performance will continue in the upcoming months with additional satellites becoming operational

Covington, LA. , February 1, 2012- Globalstar, Inc. (NASDAQ:GSAT), today announced its commercial and recreational customers are experiencing significant improvements in Globalstar’s satellite telephone service.  The enhancements to Globalstar’s service is the result of the company’s recently deployed second-generation satellites, designed to support its current voice, Duplex and Simplex data products and services including its SPOT brand of retail consumer products. 

On December 28, 2011, the company successfully completed its third launch of six second-generation satellites from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.  Globalstar expects to announce an update regarding the timing of its fourth launch in the next few weeks.  Globalstar is on track to be the first Mobile Satellite Services provider to launch, deploy and utilize a second-generation constellation of Low Earth Orbit satellites to service new and existing customers around the world. 

“We are pleased to announce the return of our fast, high-quality mobile satellite voice and data solutions,” said Jay Monroe, chief executive officer, Globalstar Inc.  “Each successful launch and deployment of these new satellites has progressively increased performance. We expect continued performance improvements over the coming months and throughout 2012 as additional satellites become operational.”

“Globalstar offers tremendous value providing unmatched call clarity in a portable, satellite-based communications solution when working or traveling in remote areas.” said   Tim Hoerner, president of Digicom Global Inc., a leading satellite communications distributor and Globalstar authorized agent. “Our customers are currently enjoying improved call reliability that we expect will keep improving as more satellites are placed into service later this year.”

Globalstar aims to provide the world’s highest quality mobile satellite voice and fastest mobile satellite handset data services available to customers in more than 120 countries. The second-generation satellites are designed to have a 15 year life-span giving Globalstar and its dealer network an advantage over other MSS providers.

Globalstar's Qualcomm manufactured GSP-1700 is the smallest and lightest commercial mobile satellite handset available to customers throughout the United States and Canada, and it provides customers with superior, crystal clear CDMA voice quality. Additionally, Globalstar offers the industry’s fastest mobile satellite handset data speeds with localized telephone numbers (where available).  Combined with a price of just $499 USD MSRP, the GSP-1700 offers the highest value proposition for those customers who demand superior performance in remote northern areas such as northern Canada and parts of Alaska.

Now through March 31, 2012 new Globalstar customers can enjoy unlimited voice and data airtime service in North America for just $39.99 per month.  This includes bundled voice and data service plus free roaming throughout North America and the Caribbean.
