Satellite phones provider Globalstar has received permission from the FCC to add a terrestrial component to their service. The company can now use a portion of its spectrum for terrestrial base stations that will provide service to urban areas satellite phone signals normally cannot reach. Once base stations are installed, Globalstar will offer a modified version of current satellite / cellular dual mode handsets to take advantage of the new infrastructure. Globalstar is not the only company looking at this technology, Mobile Satellite Ventures recently announced they plan to offer a similar service.
