Globe Wireless today announced it has reached a significant milestone, surpassing one million GSM minutes per month. Since its launch in April 2009, GlobeMobile has grown to become the world’s largest maritime GSM network with over 20,000 active subscribers on just over 1,300 vessels.
GlobeMobile is a GSM solution providing crew members voice calling and SMS capabilities at affordable rates. GlobeMobile provides complete flexibility for crew members including standard voice calls to and from the vessel, SMS messaging and free onboard mobile-to-mobile calling.
GlobeMobile can be used with Inmarsat FleetBroadband and VSAT terminals through our unique Globe Wireless built GSM network. Crew members simply insert the GlobeMobile SIM card into their GSM phone, and within a few minutes they are able to send and receive voice calls and SMS messages while at sea.
“We have over one million reasons why GlobeMobile is the maritime industry’s GSM service of choice,” said David Kagan, President & CEO of Globe Wireless. “I think it speaks volumes about how our customers recognize the value of GlobeMobile in being the anytime, anywhere at sea, personal communications solution.”
