Smart Phone Satellite technology

The Cellular company in the Philippines I subscribe to (SMART) is introducing a Satellite service to extend range while still using your Android or whatever smart phone.

Anyone have experience with this?

Re: Smart Phone Satellite technology

The SmartSAT SATSleeve Hotspot is a device that allows smartphone users to turn their phone into a satellite smartphone, giving them the ability to have reliable connectivity beyond the coverage of traditional terrestrial networks. It works by using the SatSleeve Hotspot App that can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play. Simply connect your smartphone to the Wi-Fi chip of the SatSleeve unit and make calls and send messages in satellite mode. The smartphone can access email and popular social media and messaging apps such as Twitter and WhatsApp among many others. SatSleeve+ and Hotspot users can post news updates, chat via message apps with their contacts as well as send and receive emails from the most remote locations in satellite mode
