Anyone hear or know anything about how Globalstar
is faring in terms of getting its second generation satellites online? They originally claimed that they would be starting to come online by the end of 2009, and now are saying summer 2010. This timing may be significant because, as some may know, GS has been offering a "great" service
plan of $34.95/month for unlimited usage. This offer expires March 31, 2010.
So, if the service
is going to be improved for this coming North American sailing season, taking advantage of this offer before the end of March to lock in the pricing might be worthwhile. For me/us in particular, if it would be reliable in time for June, I'd consider using it for our rally. But we can't have a scenario where we can't connect to our twice-daily skeds.
Anyone have any info?
