AT&T and TerreStar to Offer Hybrid Sat/Cell Phones
This Looks Good
They have Monthly and Annual Options but $50 for 50 minutes. $1 overage fee for example. I would not expect AT&T to eat that. If $1 roaming could be obtained then I would be pleasantly surprised. Globalstar should not be expected to make their rates as cheap for AT&T customers as for their own.
As for satellite coverage the area described is rather small, if they offered world satellite coverage when needed that would be a little better.
But as the article says this phone/service will be offered to business and government first and if you read between the lines thereâ€™s nothing for regular consumers yet.
I think this phone and service is meant for people who routinely travel outside cellular coverage.
So roaming on sat service doesn't seem odd
