    Wow, very interesting.

    Last time, Irridium tried it. Their network was crappy, they ran out of money and failed to launch the last 11 satellites and the handset was like a large piece of brick. Hope this time things work for the better.

    These are the same satellite phones used my Mumbai attack terrorists.

    Nevertheless, there are many benefits of satellite phone especial for fishermen who are on high seas or people who go for expeditions in exotic but deserted places.
