GlobaFone to Offer Iridium GO! Service
[Via Satellite 04-18-2014] GlobaFone added the Iridium GO! personal Wi-Fi hotspot device to its portfolio of satellite services. The GO! device can connect to multiple devices, as well as enable voice and data communications from your personal device without requiring an extra satellite phone.
“The notion of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), impossible just a few years ago, is now a reality,” said GlobaFone CEO Lou Altman.
All that is required is downloading the application, placing the GO! hotspot within 100 feet of the device and propping up the small antenna in order to connect to Wi-Fi. Plans start at $45 per month, and $1.09 per minute. There is also an unlimited plan for $135 per month.
