GlobaFone CEO To Reveals How to Choose the Right Satellite Phone

Webinar will educate satellite phone buyers and end users on the options and how to sift through them to make a good decision

Portsmouth NH, May 23, 2014: GlobaFone, a leading multi-carrier satellite service provider has announced a free webinar designed to help buyers decide how to choose the right satellite phone. The session entitled ‘How to Choose the Right Satellite Phone presents educational information on constellations, networks and handsets. The webinar is scheduled for May 29, 2014 at 2:00 PM Eastern time.

“There are so many opinions of which satellite phone is ‘best'”, said GlobaFone CEO Lou Altman. “Best is subjective: different organizations have different requirements and there is not a one-size-fits-all solution.”

The webinar looks beyond the marketing hyperbole to the constellations, networks and devices. More importantly there are questions every buyer needs to be asking in order to ensure their users have the proper phone for their location, geography and functionality requirements.

“There is a whole lot more than just the phone that one must consider when buying satellite phones,” said Altman. “The lowest price may look great for example, but if the phone will not work where you are located, you may as well not have it. This webinar will break through many pre-conceived notions and help guide participants to a definitive answer.”

Nerds ARE the Real Rock Stars

Once again, I have been humbled and reminded of how much I do not know.  Last week marked my annual trip to the FIRST Robotics World Championships in St. Louis.  I’ve volunteered for six years now as the pit announcer; helping the young genius’ get where they need to be, donate parts to other teams and even providing some energetic rally cries.  It is a pretty remarkable experience, one of my favorite volunteering activities.
