Satellite revolution underway
Written on the 3 December 2010
Gold Coast telco Pivotel will invest $20 million into ground support infrastructure as satellite provider Globalstar begins the first roll out of its technology.
The US-based Globalstar has launched the first six of 24 second generation low earth orbit satellites which it says will revolutionise satellite data technology. It follows four-years and $1 billion in development.
As Australia’s sole Globalstar service provider, Pivotel is aiming for Australia to be positioned to take advantage of the new phone and internet coverage.
